A: There is no legal limit on the number of diazepam pills a person can possess in Hawaii. However, diazepam is a Schedule II controlled substance, which means that it has a high potential for abuse and addiction. As a result, it is important to only possess diazepam if you have a valid prescription from a doctor. If you are caught possessing diazepam without a prescription, you may be charged with a crime. The severity of the charge will depend on the amount of diazepam you are possessing. For example, possession of less than 1 gram of diazepam is a misdemeanor, while possession of more than 1 gram of diazepam is a felony. For personalized legal advice tailored to your unique circumstances, it's advisable to consult with an attorney.
