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.
