Israel gives green light to decriminalize marijuana use
The Israeli government voted on Sunday in favor of decriminalizing recreational marijuana use, joining some U.S. states and European countries who have adopted a similar approach.

"On the one hand we are opening ourselves up to the future. On the other hand, we understand the dangers and will try to balance the two," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet in broadcast remarks.

According to the new policy, which must still be ratified by parliament, people caught smoking marijuana would be fined rather than arrested and prosecuted. Criminal procedures would be launched only against those caught repeatedly with the drug.

It's high time (pardon the pun) they relax the laws on that. What people do in the privacy of their own homes is their business. It helps a lot of people with chronic pain, and they don't have to get strung out on opiates.

It's not really decriminalized if you still get fined for smoking it 13.gif

It's just they don't make you sit in a jail.

Hopefully, those that use is medicinally will be ignored.
