Ask Rep. Yamane to schedule a hearing and pass S.B. 767!

Earlier this week, I alerted you that the full Hawaii Senate overwhelmingly approved a legalization bill, S.B. 767, in a historic 20-5 vote.

S.B. 767 has now been referred to the House Health, Human Services, & Homelessness Committee. It is now up to Committee Chair Rep. Ryan Yamane to schedule S.B. 767 for a hearing and a vote.

If the bill is not heard soon, it is effectively dead.

Let Rep. Yamane know you want the Hawaii House to pass legalization this year.

S.B. 767 faces an arduous process in the House, as it needs to make it through the joint judiciary and consumer protection and commerce committee and the finance committee before heading to the House floor for a vote.

But every step forward brings us closer to the day when cannabis prohibition ends in Hawaii. As the bill progresses, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Mahalo for your continued support.
