Medical marijuana in Israel
Israel is the world leader in medical Marijuana use. While Israel could serve as a model for other countries on how to use marijuana medicinally, the Health Ministry was given a briefing this week on parts of this operation that need to be improved. There is medical marijuana being sold on the black market, and the fields to grow the drug are not properly secured to prevent theft. Approximately 15 tons of medicinal cannabis are stolen each year. Most medical marijuana fields do not meet the police's standards.
