Israel is banking on cannabis as its next big industry

Raphael Mechoulam seems an unlikely figure to be called a pot pioneer. But the 88-year-old Bulgarian-born Holocaust survivor and professor emeritus at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was among the first scientists to isolate psychoactive ingredients in marijuana — and realize their therapeutic potential.

“I was surprised that the knowledge on marijuana was so far below” other drugs like opioids and cocaine, Mechoulam said in an interview at his cluttered office at Hadassah Medical Center just outside the city.

“Most people think cannabis is a plant you smoke,” he said. “My point is it is much more than that.”

Ayelet Shaked, Justice Minister of Israel, made a statement back in January about the Israeli government’s decision to legalize the export of cannabis: “I am glad this is finally happening.

Israel: Medical cannabis to be made available by prescription for certain illnesses

In a recent development that can act as a major boost for the global medical marijuana industry, Israel has decided to make it easier for its citizens to purchase the product with greater ease. According to reports, the Health Ministry of Israel has decided to delist medical marijuana from the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance and has paved the way for citizens to get medical marijuana easier. Needless to say, an individual would still need to have a prescription on them. Once that is in place, buying medical marijuana will no longer be a problem. Specialist doctors will also be able to prescribe it as medication.

We need more research - The last cannabis excuse exposed

The idea that we “need more research” when it comes to cannabis simply isn’t accurate. We have plenty of research on this plant, especially since we’ve been studying it for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Of course, modern medicine requires certain standards when it comes to research, however, even by modern standards we have enough research available to conclude on the safety of cannabis.

The “More Research” fallacy is nothing more than a stall tactic. For thousands of years, humans have been using cannabis for medical, spiritual, and recreational purposes. Throughout all this time, the general consensus is that cannabis is relatively benign and actually very beneficial for humans to consume.
