Hawaii Mulls Raising Taxes on Fledgling MMJ Program
Lawmakers in Hawaii are considering raising taxes on medical marijuana to help cover some the of costs associated with setting up the state’s MMJ program, but many are worried that a tax hike will hurt the very people who can least afford it: the patients.
State Rep. Della Au Belatti, chair of the House Health Committee, supports a so-called “Use Tax” on MMJ, on top of the existing general tax.
“We need to have that conversation, because we know that there are associated costs with setting up the medical marijuana program,”Belatti told Hawaiinewsnow. “There is a delicate balance that we’re trying to strike.”
The amount of the proposed tax increase is still unknown.

Super Lemon Haze (Hybrid)
The Super Lemon Haze is a superstar. This strain swept first prize in Amsterdams Cannabis Cup for two consecutive years (2008 and 2009), also taking second in the Sativa Cup in 2009. The popularity of this strain stands on the shoulders of its predecessors. The father, Super Silver Haze, was already famous, taking high accolades and multiple prizes throughout the late 1990s. However, not all children of the famous go on to earn fame in their own right. It takes the right combination, and in this case, that combination involves a Lemon Skunk mother, a selection from a Citral x Skunk cross.
Marijuana Industry Projected to Create Nearly 300,000 Jobs by 2020
As we gingerly move into an unpredictable and so far unpleasant reality that some are calling Trumpism, we are trying to ascertain what the new administration, under the likes of virulently anti-pot Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, will mean for the cannabis industry. Admittedly, we are a bit nervous.
However, with a majority of states now enjoying legal weed in some form, we try to be optimistic in the hope that the federal government will respect states’ rights.
This begs an obvious question: How could the current administration not see the benefits of legal marijuana, one of the fastest growing industries in the country that is creating what everybody wants—jobs, jobs and more jobs?
A recent report from New Frontier Data projects that by 2020, the legal cannabis market will create more than a quarter of a million jobs. Yes, that many.
