Bronfman calls on Ovadia Yossef to legalize dope

MK Roman Bronfman (Meretz) has called upon Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yossef to issue an edict permitting the use of marijuana and hashish, reports Ynet.

The request comes following Bronfman's receipt of documentation showing that, historically, North African Jewry had a more liberal approach to the subject.

The rabbi who prepared the document, and who preferred to remain unnamed, states that Cannabis was used as far back as in Mishnaic times, its stems used instead of linen until the modern era.

Moroccan Jews were issued licenses to sell Hashish, and spiritual leaders there had never issued edicts against its use.

Bronfman also said that the issuing of such an edict would enable the rabbis to formally differentiate between Cannabis and harder drugs, to say nothing of the more harmful tobacco and alcohol.

I think it's worth noting that Roman Bronfman is a member of The Anti-Drug Abuse Committee. This is his e-mail address: rbronfman@knesset.gov.il

I kind of overlooked this post before, but actually this is GREAT news. It means the Rabbies are discussing the legalisation also.! Very Happy

Fantastic! This just adds to our jusification of using cannabis as a religious sacrament. The more religious organazations join this cause the better.

Peace
