Israel Legalises Cannabis for Medicinal Use

Israel legalised medicinal cannabis in a cabinet meeting on Sunday 7th August 2011. The move was designed to recognise that “medical use of cannabis is necessary in certain cases”. The Israeli Police and the Israel Anti-Drug Authority will oversee the import and local cultivation of the drug.

Cannabis has been associated with psychosis, but has been touted by some as an effective anti-spasmodic and analgesic useful in treating some symptoms of multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries among other conditions.
