Hawaii’s health department faced pointed criticism from state lawmakers last week for dragging its feet on medical marijuana cultivation.
Some companies indicated they are confronting job cuts because of the delays.
“I’m just trying to figure out what’s taking it so long cause I really don’t think this is rocket science,” state Sen. Roz Baker declared during a meeting of the Medical Marijuana Legislative Oversight Working Group.
According to Hawaii News Now, the state has signed a contract to implement a seed-to-sale tracking program. But that won’t be ready for the dispensaries for another couple of months.
