Israel to legalise recreational cannabis

Israel’s Justice Minister has announced that recreational cannabis possession will be legalised in 9 months. Two laws are currently being reviewed by the Israeli parliament, one to legalise possession of up to 15g of cannabis and a second to regulate cannabis sales. Israel has the world’s highest prevalence of cannabis use, with almost 30% of the population reporting use in the last year.
