After Historic Decision, Marijuana To Be Sold At Pharmacies

ISREAL:  Medical marijuana will soon be sold in pharmacies across Israel, Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman, who functions as the de facto health minister, announced on Monday during a Knesset committee meeting.

Marijuana will be sold to patients with prescriptions, and will be controlled like any other prescription medication. However, more doctors will be authorized to write prescriptions for medical marijuana, the deputy minister said.

“I am aware of the need to change the Health Ministry’s existing policy on the matter,” Litzman told the Knesset committee.
