Aloha Green LLC became the state’s second licensed medical cannabis dispensary when it opened its doors Wednesday (09 August 2017) morning in Honolulu. According to reporter Kristen Consillio, around 40 customers were standing in line for the opening at 11 a.m. Hawaii Time.
Kaimuki resident John Ruiz IV said he was lucky to be the first in line:
“I feel spoiled. I was just lucky enough to be here at the right place at the right time (to be the) first person on Oahu,” said Ruiz, 27, who uses the drug for pain relief and insomnia. “It’s a great thing for the state. It’s a great way for the state to make money as well as serve the people. They need this for many reasons.”
