Dr. Clifton Otto from Cannabis Healthcare Hawaii recently reached out to the Hawaii State Department of Health Director, Elizabeth Char on behalf of patients. The letter, is introductory in nature and an olive branch to the DOH in hopes of cultivating communication between the DOH and patient advocates. Please read the letter and send your own letter of support for federal exemption or any issue you are experiencing as a participant in the program.
Dr. Otto received a response from Dr. Char’s office and replied to DOH Deputy Director, Danette Wong Tomiyasu. Dr. Otto’s response thanked the Deputy Director for acknowledging the “current federal conflict with the medical use of cannabis in Hawaii and for consideration of a Medical Cannabis Advisory Board.”
