Israel Law Makes Marijuana Available by Prescription

Israel

Israel’s Health Ministry has removed marijuana from its Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, which will help medical marijuana patients get easier access to marijuana.

The new law allows specialists to prescribe medical marijuana rather than the Health Ministry approving patients, Grizzle reported.

The Health Ministry’s Director General Moshe Bar Siman Tov said, “Israel is a leader in the use of cannabis for medical purposes, and this step is another stage in making it easier for patients and turning medical cannabis into a medical product like any other.”

Prescriptions can now be taken to approved pharmacies for patients to obtain their medical marijuana.
