Marijuana, hashish, cannabis, opiates, cocaine, and related products are illegal drugs in Israel. Laws of the country do not differentiate between these drugs. The medical use of marijuana and hashish is not punishable under the law if the same is approved by a person or body appointed by the Ministry of Health.
The punishment for using cannabis is not severe for “personal use” and the amount defined for personal use is 15 grams of marijuana and hashish. Patients suffering from nausea induced by chemotherapy or those in the later stages of HIV are allowed to enter a medical marijuana program.
