Tourist Tip #186 / Keep off the grass
You may sniff a whiff in the street. But don't let faux casualness of users mislead you. Drugs are illegal.
There you are, strolling down some leafy boulevard in an Israeli city or town, and you smell it. You know that smell. But you should also know this. Though the Middle Eastern drug culture is almost as old as its hills, in Israel, it's illegal. Period.
