BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

 


     SECTION 1.  Section 329-122, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended by amending subsection (f) to read as follows:

     "(f)  For the purposes of this section, "transport" means the transportation of cannabis, usable cannabis, or any manufactured cannabis product between:

     (1)  A qualifying patient and the qualifying patient's primary caregiver;

     (2)  A qualifying out-of-state patient under eighteen years of age and the caregiver of a qualifying out-of-state patient;

     (3)  The production centers and the retail dispensing locations under a dispensary licensee's license; or

     (4)  A production center, retail dispensing location, qualifying patient, primary caregiver, qualifying out-of-state patient, or caregiver of a qualifying out-of-state patient and a certified laboratory for the purpose of laboratory testing; provided that a

          qualifying patient, primary caregiver, qualifying out-of-state patient, or caregiver of a qualifying out-of-state patient may only transport up to one gram of cannabis per test to a certified laboratory for laboratory testing and may only transport the product if the qualifying patient, primary caregiver, qualifying out-of-state patient, or caregiver of a qualifying out-of-state patient:

          (A)  Secures an appointment for testing at a certified laboratory;

          (B)  Obtains confirmation, which may be electronic, that includes the specific time and date of the appointment and a detailed description of the product and amount to be transported to the certified laboratory for the appointment; and

          (C)  Has the confirmation, which may be electronic, available during transport.

     For purposes of interisland transportation, "transport" of cannabis, usable cannabis, or any manufactured cannabis product, by any means is allowable only by a qualifying patient or qualifying out-of-state patient for the patient's personal medical use, or between a production center or retail dispensing location and a certified laboratory for the sole purpose of laboratory testing pursuant to section 329D-8, as permitted under section 329D-6(m) and subject to section 329D‑6(j), and with the understanding that state law and its protections do not apply outside of the jurisdictional limits of the State.  [Allowable transport pursuant to this section does not include interisland transportation by any means or for any purpose between a qualified patient, primary caregiver, qualifying out-of-state patient, or caregiver of a qualifying out-of-state patient and any other entity or individual, including an individual who is a qualified patient, primary caregiver, qualifying out-of-state patient, or caregiver of a qualifying out-of-state patient.] The department of transportation and department of public safety shall adopt rules pursuant to chapter 91 necessary for the purposes of this subsection."

     SECTION 2.  Statutory material to be repealed is bracketed and stricken.  New statutory material is underscored.

     SECTION 3.  This Act shall take effect upon its approval.
