Do You Think Israel Is a Medical Marijuana Powerhouse

Discussion in 'Marijuana Stash Box' started by sammilk, Jan 21, 2014.

  1. Hey Guys,
    Just stumbled this, what do you think?
    How Israel Became A Medical Marijuana Powerhouse
    Mimi Peleg's job is to teach people how to use pot-how long to inhale smoke or vapor, how to administer sublingual drops, or how to ration out a pot cookie.
    Peleg directs large-scale cannabis training for the Israeli government's state-supported, discreet, successful and expanding medical cannabis distribution center, MECHKAR. MECHKAR began as a tiny program serving about 1,800 people from 2008-2009. Today, supplied by eight farms located all over the country, the program distributes cannabis to 12,000 patients.

    Is that true?

  2. I hate Israel but they bred Cannabis with next to zero percent THC and high CBD apparently, so atleast they can do something good for the world.

     Israel is bullshit when it comes to marijuana laws. But they do have one of the best marijuana strains in the world. Very cheap too. 35grams cost 100$ in Israel (WITH THE MEDICAL CARD WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE TO OBTAIN).
    On the streets it's 30 USD $ for shit weed.
    ALSO, Medical patients are limited to 35 grams a month :S They can't ask for more. And glass bongs/bongs in general are banned in Israel, unless you can find something homemade and buy it from someone if u dont have a medical card.
    Also if you apply for a medical card, they take away your drivers license and ban you from driving ever again.
  4. Ban you from driving for life, fuck that. I'd be toking Lebanese hash and making plans to emigrate to Colorado, partly because I also cannot stand the Netanyahu government.
  5. Also there are only a couple of medical doctors who can approve your medical card. It takes 6 months to get a response. Say you apply for medical marijuana in January, they'll have you summoned by April to take some medical exams, and then if they decide you qualify, they let you know about 6-8 weeks afterwards whether you are eligible or not. Also, you have to pay some fees. And they give you 6-12 months medical card meaning, depending on the length of your membership at the medical clinics, you'd have to re-apply every 6-12 months to get another year of medical cannabis treatment.
    The Israeli system is deeply flawed. Some politicians spoke that Alcohol is far safer than Marijuana. and in Israel, marijuana is portrayed as a hard drug accompanied by heroin and cocaine. Even the people are against marijuana because they're brainwashed by the government and also at school, every few months they send a bunch of volunteers to explain to students how marijuana can destroy lives.
    Makes me sick to my stomach.
  6. Israel is sitting on one of the largest natural gas reserves in the world. They are a world elite and highly supported by the West for a reason. What their system shows us is basically what's to come world wide, except that pharma will supply cannabis in pill form rahter than raw cannabis as things advance further. This is another example why we implore people to read the laws and only accept viable options that still allow personal grows and avoid ridiculous taxation and over-regulation. If you don't, the provisions under which they "allow" cannabis are so ridiculous it doesn't work at any level. They are a powerhouse, but only because of their wealth and resources and how that allows them to write the rules as they see fit.
