I am glad to see marijuana used for medicinal purposes. It's close cousin, hemp, is a wonder plant and can be used to make the best rope, paper and clothing. The seed is a wonder food and it's oil among the healthiest, including for the skin. Israel would be an ideal climate in which to grow it. However, I understand that the government in Jerusalem, following its slavish copying of US policy(as in the Cuban embargo as well), does not allow it to be cultivated. This should change. It would be a boon to farmers and could bring in money as hemp products are catching on all over the world.
