Most people think of coffee when they hear the name, “Kona” and would probably think that Kona Gold is a strain of coffee if they were asked what it was.


That would be pretty far from the truth since “Kona Gold” is a strain of potent marijuana which has probably been grown in Hawaii since the 1960s. It’s famous throughout the world as being one of the best strains of marijuana ever!


And yes, it’s also illegal in the state with jail time and fines possibly applied if you’re caught possessing it, with the exception of medical marijuana used to alleviate certain medical diseases. For example, the possession of more than an ounce to a pound (28g-454g) can get you a one-year jail sentence and a fine of up to $2,000.


Since it’s illegal, the growers take extreme steps to hide it, since getting caught with a large amount over 25 pounds is a felony which can bring jail time of up to 20 years and a fine of $50,000 to the person caught with the marijuana.


The areas around plots of marijuana are often booby-trapped and I recall finding trip wires and other traps when I worked for the State’s College of Ag visiting remote farms as an advisor.
