When Hawaii’s two operational medical marijuana dispensaries were forced to close just days after opening, a laboratory bottleneck was blamed for a supply disruption.

But participants in the fledgling MMJ program said the state’s only functioning lab isn’t at fault.Instead, they pointed to a number of other factors for their problems, including:

  • A surge of patients who have waited years for the program
  • Too few dispensariesRestrictions on products labs can test
  • A lack of preparation

Maui Grown Therapies and Oahu’s Aloha Green opened for business a day apart last week.
