The Israeli parliament has passed a bill stating each export license for medical cannabis must be approved by the Israel Ministry of Health, and that Israel Police must submit its opinion on each license applicant before approval is granted.

The bill passed its second and third reading in the Knesset plenum on Tuesday evening, ensuring the regulation would be enshrined into law.
