Medical Marijuana Is Kosher, Says Israeli Orthodox Rabbi Efraim Zalmanovich


Recommended Posts

An orthodox rabbi of the Israeli town of Mazkeret Batia has claimed that distributing and smoking marijuana is kosher as long as it's for medical purposes.

According to an article on NRG, the website of the Maariv newspaper, Efraim Zalmanovich said that taking drugs to escape this world in any excessive way is certainly forbidden, the Huffington Post reported.

Marijuana is currently illegal under Israeli law, but the nation's ministry of health has issued medical pot permits for some patients.
