Israel: Pharmacies To Provide Medical CannabisJerusalem, Israel–(ENEWSPF)–July 30, 2015.  Medical marijuana preparations will soon be available in Israeli pharmacies, a Health Ministry representative announced Monday. In conjunction with the plan, government officials also intend to license additional physicians to prescribe cannabis therapy.
