Marijuana Seeds from Israel
In Israel marijuana is an illegal substance, which is a little different than many other countries in the type or severity of punishment. When a person is caught with an amount of 15 grams for personal use, there is not a severe punishment and it is socially accepted. Cannabis paraphernalia is not unusual to see in places like cafes and there is a medical marijuana program for patients that meet certain prerequisites. These are usually patients that are suffering the effects of chemotherapy, MS or are in the later stages of medical conditions like HIV.
Marijuana is illegal to smoke, to buy, to sell or to grow in Israel, but with personal use defined as 15 grams, which is not severely punished, police will usually ignore a person with marijuana, unless they are in trouble for another offense. If a person is taken to the police station due to possessing an amount of marijuana normally the record that is made will be cancelled in a year if there are no other offenses, when the amount is what could be considered for personal use. Higher amounts of marijuana do carry a more severe punishment for the person smoking, selling, growing or buying the cannabis. This more severe punishment can include jail time and depending on the type of marijuana offense and the amount will determine the amount of jail time that will be issued.
The Ministry of Health in Israel as recent as 2009 has been instructed to expand their regulations of the medial patients use and authorization of medical marijuana, which also included the number of authorized marijuana producers. The general marijuana laws have not been opposed by activists or political officials to change the laws making marijuana illegal and remain the same.
