Synopsis: Questioning the reason for limiting medical marijuana prescriptions to only patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, cancer, HIV, AIDS, and/or glaucoma.

Aloha mai e nā makamaka heluhelu. 'O ia po'o mana'o e kau a'ela ma luna, he 'ōlelo ia no nā mea kau kānāwai o Hawai'i nei. Penei ka mo'olelo.

'O ka ho'ohana 'ia 'ana o ka pakalōlō ma ke 'ano he lā'au lapa'au, he pila ia i 'āpono 'ia e ka Hale o nā Lunamaka'āinana a me ka 'Aha Kenekoa o Hawai'i nei ma ka mahina 'o 'Apelila o ka makahiki 2000, a pūlima 'ia akula ua pila lā e ke kia'āina o ia manawa, e Ben Cayetano. A ua kū nō i kānāwai ma ka mahina 'o Kēkēmapa o ia makahiki.

Ua ho'olilo 'ia ka ho'ohana 'ia 'ana o ka pakalōlō i mea pono ma ke kānāwai ma Hawai'i nei.

He mea maika'i nō paha ia no ka po'e i lo'ohia i nā 'ano ma'i 'ino like 'ole a ka hapanui o kākou i 'ike 'ole ai. Ma ia kānāwai o ke ao mālamalama, ua helu 'ia aku nō nā 'ano ma'i e hā'awi 'ia ai ka pakalōlō i lā'au lapa'au, 'o ka ma'i 'a'ai, 'o ka ma'i ho'omakapō, 'o ka HIV/AIDS, 'o ka ma'i ho'omāiloilo, 'o ka 'eha kūpiliki'i, 'o ka naluea kūpiliki'i, 'o ka huki, 'o ke oikū mau ke loa'a i ka ma'i ho'olōlō i nā a'alolo a me ka ma'i na'au 'ūpehupehu paha, a me kekahi mau ma'i, aia wale nō na'e a 'āpono 'ia e ke Ke'ena Ola. 'Eā, 'a'ole nō i loa'a ko 'oukou mea kākau i kekahi o ia mau ma'i i helu papa 'ia aku nei ma luna, eia na'e, ua mōakāka, 'a'ole i kana mai ka 'eha ke loa'a aku i ia mau ma'i. A no ia kumu nō paha i lōkahi ai ka mana'o o nā mea kau kānāwai o Hawai'i nei a 'āpono 'ia ai ia pila ho'ōla.

'O ka mea 'āpiki, aia nō ke kūkākūkā 'ia a'ela kahi pila hou, ka Pila Kenekoa 1458. A ma ua pila nei, e kaupalena 'ia ana nā 'ano ma'i e kuhikuhi 'ia ai ka pakalōlō i lā'au lapa'au, he mau ma'i helu wale nō koe, 'o ka ma'i ho'olōlō i nā a'alolo a pau, 'o ka ma'i 'a'ai, 'o ka HIV/AIDS a me ka ma'i ho'omakapō. 'O nā kānaka i loa'a i nā ma'i 'ino 'ē a'e, iā lākou ka puapua. E ō ana ka 'ōlelo kaulana a kahi hoa o ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'o ia ho'i, e aho ka make. Loko'ino maoli 'oukou e nā hoa (kau kānāwai), ka lilo paha i ka ulaia, aloha 'ole iho i nā kupu'eu, e 'au hele nei i ka 'eha'eha.

'O ka nīnau paha e kupu a'e, 'o ia ho'i, no ke aha i mana'o ai nā mea kau kānāwai e ho'ēmi i nā 'ano ma'i?

Ma ka Hōkū-Avalataisa o ka Pō'akolu nei, 'ike 'ia akula ka 'ōlelo a ke Kenekoa Josh Green, ua nui nā kuhikuhi lā'au lapa'au (no ka pakalōlō) ma Hawai'i moku, a he hapalua o ia huina, ua hā'awi 'ia aku i nā kānaka i emi mai nā makahiki i ke 30. He mea nui nā makahiki o ke kanaka? No ka pono wale nō ua kānāwai nei o ka po'e i o'o? 'A'ole pēlā ka 'ōlelo ma ke kānāwai i 'āpono 'ia i ka makahiki 2000.

Pehea ke kuhi nei paha ua kenekoa lā i ka hana kolohe a kekahi po'e kauka o Hawai'i nui a Keawe? 'O ia ho'i, he hā'awi wale aku i ke kuhikuhi lā'au lapa'au pakalōlō. Inā pēlā, 'o ia mau kauka ke ho'opa'i 'ia. 'A'ole 'o ka po'e ma'i. E kāpae 'ia ka Pila Kenekoa 1458 ka pono. 'O ia ihola i lohe 'oukou.
