What is the current legal status of Cannabis in Israel?

According to the Israeli law, the Cannabis plant and anything produced from it (except for oil which is produced from its seeds), is defined as a dangerous drug which is prohibited for use or possession. In order to use and/or possess Cannabis, it is necessary to obtain a special license issued by the Unit for Medical Cannabis at the Ministry of Health, or by a physician authorized to do so by the Ministry of Health. A physician with the relevant specialty may submit an application for a license for his patients through the Ministry of Health website.
