Marijuana use in Hawaii is the big current topic. On June 25, 2013, Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed two bills that will affect Hawaii's medical marijuana program. It will make certain that the program will be run by health professionals and the law enforcement will not have control of the program. The patients will be able to now have four ounces of marijuana instead of three, they will be able to have up to seven plants at any growth stage they choose, and will need to get a recommendation from their physician saying it will be benefit them. This new law will not take effect until January 2, 2015.
