420 with CNW – Israeli Marijuana Legalization Bills Jump First Hurdle

June 24, 2020 03:25:16

The past few years have been good for cannabis. Prohibited for decades in most territories, cannabis has seen a slew of positive legislative changes, with a number of countries legalizing the substance in various capacities. Israel has taken the first tentative steps towards legalization after the Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved two bills on Sunday that would decriminalize the possession and personal use of cannabis in the country.

Now past its first hurdle to becoming law, the legislation would decriminalize the possession of up to 50 grams of marijuana and legalize the possession and consumption of up to 15 grams by individuals above the age of 21, with the exception of those who work in security positions. It will also be prohibited to drive while using or under the influence of cannabis. Additionally, an advocacy fund will be set up to educate people in schools about the dangers of using cannabis and to prevent addictions, and all advertising restrictions
