Man Drinks Entire Bottle of Cannabis Oil in Israeli Legislature to Prove Its Safety

The Israeli government recently debated controversial changes to their country's medical marijuana program. And to protest these changes, one man decided to show just how safe cannabis is.

While the Knesset, the Israeli legislature, debated changes to the country's medical marijuana program, one man disrupted the proceedings by making a demonstration of the safety of cannabis. The man produced a bottle of cannabis oil and drank the entire thing. Before he chugged it, he said, "I have cannabis medical oil that contains 30% THC. You say it's a dangerous drug, what will happen to me if I consume it?" 

After finishing the bottle, the man shouted, "You can't overdose on medical cannabis oil." He was removed by security.

The Knesset was debating changes to the Israeli medical marijuana laws that would increase costs for consumers and would also remove labels from marijuana strains so customers wouldn't know what they were purchasing, although there seems to be some debate over whether the labeling changes would actually be implemented.

The new law would also allow cannabis to be sold in pharmacies.

As far as we know, the man is perfectly fine after chugging that whole bottle of very dangerous cannabis oil.
