Hawaii Visitors' Guide to Medical Cannabis Access
Hawai’i now allows visitors from other U.S. states and territories to use their medical cannabis cards to get a temporary Out-of-State (OSP) card, which is issued by the Hawaii Department of Health. If you are visiting Hawai’i from another U.S. state or territory, and have a current medical cannabis card from your home state, you can apply for an OSP card that is valid for 60 days. With an OSP card you can visit any Hawaii dispensary and purchase medical cannabis.
