Minister: Israel top distributor of medical marijuana

Published: 05.22.13, 12:58 / Israel News

Health Minister Yael German (Yesh Atid) replied to questions from MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud-Beiteinu) regarding the use of medical marijuana, "Cannabis is not a medication, and until now its effectiveness has not been proven ... but there has been evidence in its assistance in fighting pain. It is listed as a dangerous drug, thus there is a need for a permit to use it.”


Feiglin attacked her statement, saying that "in the attempt to keep the general public from using cannabis, this is preventing its use by the patients who really need it." (Moran Azulay)
