EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW is the only thing literally cut in stone above the doors to the U.S. Supreme Court. The feds and all U.S. states including Hawai’i allow relatively generous amounts of wine and beer to be made at home for non-commercial, family use called “home brew” laws. No license, permit, registration, taxes, or fees required.
Hawaii statute Title 16, Chapter 281, Part I, § 281-3 provides that the head of any family may produce for family use and not for sale an amount of wine not exceeding two hundred gallons a year, and an amount of beer not exceeding one hundred gallons a year.
How about “equal justice under law” for home grows of Cannabis? I suggest 24 Cannabis plants to be allowed, long described in the Hawaii Revised Statutes as a misdemeanor, “personal use” amount.
24 Cannabis plants per property is also the amount voted on and passed by Hawaii County citizens in 2008 for the Peaceful Sky ballot initiative. See Peaceful Sky dot org for details.
