MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN HAWAII:
Since the year 2000, Hawaii Legislators created the Medical Marijuana Program. Qualifying conditions include: cancer, glaucoma, HIV (+) status, chronic or debilitating disease: Severe pain, severe nausea, seizures (epilepsy), severe & persistent muscle spasms (from Multiple Sclerosis or Crohn’s Disease), severe weakness, malnutrition or weight loss. Effective January 1, 2015, the Hawaii’s Medical Use of Marijuana Program was transferred from the Department of Public Safety to the Department of Health, according to Act 177. The state’s Department of Health will develop administrative rules, including licensing application criteria and regulations, for a medical marijuana dispensary system. Applications will be accepted beginning early 2016. Hawaii will license eight dispensaries, which can begin selling medical marijuana to registered patients by November 2016, according to
Penn joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, where he revealed that his retirement is officially over, and that he’s going for the featherweight strap with famed coach Greg Jackson in his corner.
“That’s who I am, Ariel. That’s who I am. That’s what I do.
“I want to go get that 145-pound belt. That’s definitely a huge motivation for me. I believe with Greg Jackson’s help, I can get that done. And I believe that I will be able to walk away as the only man with three titles in three weight divisions.”
While many are doubting the former two-division champ’s ability to compete with the best in the world at 37 years old, Penn says there is no doubt in his mind about whether or not he will go through with a comeback.
“I’m going through with this,” Penn said. “If I didn’t have somebody like Greg Jackson to come out and talk to me and tell me that I can do this… of course you’re always going to believe that you’re the best, you’re always going to believe that you can be the champ. But once in a while, you do have to step back and get someone else’s outside opinion.”
Today we commemorate the memory of a true defender, Martin Luther King Jr.
How a near tragedy sparked the rise of Hawaii’s second generation of MMA stars
Charles Kipili Jr. was lying in a hospital bed three years ago, not knowing whether he’d live or die.
The one thing he did know is that if he managed to survive this savage stabbing, the one that severed the brachial artery near his bicep, he had to get his act together. If not just for himself and his family, but also the fighters he had taken under his wing.
“I just started thinking about when I got shot [in 2007], all the fights I’ve been in and I felt like, ‘Oh man, I’m not gonna get a lot of chances if I keep living this lifestyle,'” Kipili Jr. said……

Reno Henriques’, Chef & Owner of Fresh Catch, dream of owning an “Island Style” Seafood & Meat Deli became a reality with the opening of this “one-stop” poke picnic & tailgating deli. Reno graduated from St. Louis H.S. and the Western Culinary Institute in Portland., Oregon. Growing up next to the ocean, fishing diving and preparing seafood dishes was his passion. Over the years he’s worked to perfect his local style dishes. Fresh Catch offers residents and visitors seafood & meats prepared “Island Style”. Teaming up with his brother, Domic Henriques, owner of RRR Recycling, customers who redeem HI-5 cans at RRR’s 3109 Waialae Redemption Site will get a 5% discount on Fresh Catch purchases.
“What am I going to do now?” Reno asks himself after the quail eggs he tried smoking go up in flames. Without time to remake them, he relies on the flavor of smoked chicken and bacon to permeate his Chinese Chicken Salad. “I would have liked to have seen that pulled off,” Troy tells him. With Reno receiving only one negative comment, the Judges put Reno through to the shopping spree, and Benny checks out. Reno ends up earning $16,000.
