On February 28, 2013, at 12:00 P.M. I attended a Hawaii State Bar Association (HSBA) 1-Hour Seminar on FASTCASE, which is an Internet legal research program for 1 MCPE credit. HSBA requires attorneys to have continuing legal education of 3 MCPE credits a year to remain licensed.
At 2:00 P.M. before the House Judiciary Committee, I testified in opposition to HB667 HD1 regarding medical marijuana. We have concerns on this bill because it creates immunity from searches; allows seven marijuana plants whereas current law allows only three mature plants and four immature plants; does not require patient to disclose on the registry card the location of his or her plant; has no penalties if certified physician prescribing the marijuana does not tell the patient’s primary care physician; and increases the amount of patients allowed for each primary caregiver from one to three.
In the evening, I attended a gathering of friends, many involved in politics under a mango tree.
