After a Thursday meeting that lasted almost three hours, with the Health Minister, MKs Moshe Feiglin (Likud) and Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) issued the following joint statement:

“Today, a meeting was conducted on the cannabis issue at the Health Minister’s office, initiated by MK Moshe Feiglin and MK Tamar Zandberg.

“No decisions were made at the meeting but there was broad agreement that any patient in need of medical treatment with cannabis entitled to one.

MK Moshe Feiglin: “It is difficult for the medical establishment to accept that there is a drug that’s not man-made, and in fact we have no control over it, we do not understand how it works, but has remarkable medical outcomes. ‘ God created mankind upright, but they have gone in search of many schemes’ (Ecclesiastes 7:29). We hope we will all be able to transcend the schemes and to pave a straight path that will give relief to thousands of patients.”

MK Tamar Zandberg: “Cannabis has long been recognized, even in Israel, as containing medical benefits. Official policy so far has been to ignore, repress and delay treatment for patients. All eyes are on the new minister, to impose a more progressive policy in this area. We’re talking about actual relief of the pain and suffering of thousands of patients.”

    This is a lie. I personally am a collaborator on a medical cannabis review right now.
