Israel Makes Cannabis Kosher

Israel has officially joined more than 20 countries in the race for legalization. On Sunday, the country officially decriminalized recreational marijuana and stands as one of the leaders of medical marijuana. Now, first-time offenders will only have to pay a fine if caught smoking in public, but may face prison if caught a fourth time. Proponents hope that this new policy will increase cannabis entrepreneurship and investment, estimating that the industry could soon be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The numbers support such growth because there are approximately 25,000 cannabis users in Israel, when there was only a few dozen a decade ago.

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
