Aloha Green, which received approval to cultivate medical marijuana in February, has harvested its first crop of marijuana. They’re permitted to grow up to 6,000 marijuana plants.
A date for sales to begin hasn’t been set yet, according to Honolulu Star-Advertiser, because the state’s tracking system is still being implemented. The harvest also requires testing before it can be sold.
Helen Cho of Aloha Green said, “We could be ready tomorrow, but it wouldn’t matter because it’s dependent on the Department of Health.”
Hawaii’s 15,000 registered medical marijuana patients are still waiting to be able to access medicine.
