Woody Harrelson Wants to Open a Pot Dispensary in Hawaii Because of course. by Rachel Handler Woody Harrelson, who, we’re stunned to report, does not already own a small pot dispensary in Hawaii, is looking to open a small pot dispensary in Hawaii. According to THR, the “actor and marijuana advocate” was one of 66 people who applied to open one of the state’s first medical marijuana dispensaries. There are only eight licenses available, and those who win The Pot Dispensary Games will be able to open their businesses as soon as July. As THR notes, Hawaii became the first state to legalize medical marijuana 16 years ago, and lawmakers there are working to legalize recreational marijuana, as well. Perhaps anticipating the forthcoming kush boom and understanding the unique appeal of getting stoned as hell in paradise, Harrelson submitted his dispensary application through his company, Simple Organic Living, LLC., which, quite appropriately, advocates for simple organic living. Other would-be indica impresarios include video game entrepreneur Henk Rogers, because video games and weed, and Dirk Fukushima, who produces a local karaoke TV show called “Hawaii Stars,” because karaoke and weed. In order for Henk, Dirk, Woody, or any of the other 63 applicants to be selected, they’re required to have $1 million in cash, $100,000 for each of their dispensary locations, and at least one good pot story from the 1970s. The applicants are also required to have been Hawaii residents for more than five years. If chosen by the Hawaii State Department Of Health to wield their power over the state’s weed, each licensee is only allowed to open up two production centers and two retail locations, max. Oahu can house six (Harrelson wants to open his in Honolulu County), Hawaii Island and Maui can house four each, and Kauai can house two. Harrelson has yet to comment on the news of the application, perhaps because he’s busy playing poker with fellow pot crusader Willie Nelson.
