In a letter dated Feb. 28, 2018, Hawai‘i County Mayor wrote to longtime Marijuana Activist Roger Christie, saying he supports the medical use of marijuana and further studies of medical use.

Mayor Kim wrote:

Dear Mr. Christie:

I am writing regarding your request for a letter of support regarding cannabis in Hawai‘i County.

You emailed my office on February 21, 2018 regarding adolescents and cannabis, among other things.

Long ago I explained to you my feelings about marijuana. I do support the medical use of marijuana and further studies of medical use. I do not support the use of marijuana by our youth.

Thank you for taking the time to write to me.

Aloha,
Harry Kim, Mayor
