Medical marijuana patients in Israel are now allowed to use some of their marijuana products in public. The use of vape pens and oils is permitted in public places, but smoking marijuana flower in public is still not permitted.
New guidelines were adopted lifting medical marijuana use from home-only restrictions, according to Forward. When it was realized that the original regulations were making it hard for patients who moved or vacationed to use their medicine legally, the Health Ministry changed the rules.
Previously, patients were required to contact the Health Ministry to notify them that about vacation plans or moving to a new home.
Israel is a global leader in medical marijuana research, and just decriminalized the recreational use of marijuana in March.
