Lawmakers are saying they might revive a bill to create a system of medical marijuana dispensaries.
The bill died late Friday when it failed to pass out of a committee before a deadline. But Senate President Donna Mercado Kim now says the Legislature may revive the bill on Monday.
Hawaii was among the first states to legalize medical marijuana nearly 15 years ago. But the estimated 13,000 patients approved for the drug statewide have generally been left to buy it on the black market or grow it on their own.
Advocates say they’re glad the Legislature is reconsidering the bill, but they wish there was a more definitive outcome.
