“These classes are a prime opportunity for the industry to encourage the participation of doctors and APRN’s in Hawai‘i who are willing and qualified to ensure that medical cannabis patients receive the care and professionalism that they deserve.

~ Christopher Garth, Executive Director of the Hawai‘i Dispensary Alliance
