1,000 Rally for Marijuana in Tel Aviv

More than 1,000 people rallied in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square calling for both the legalization of marijuana and the easing of restrictions on medical marijuana.

The rally on Saturday night featured right-wing lawmaker Moshe Feiglin of the Likud party singing the Arik Eichman song “Ani Ve’ata,” which says “you and I will change the world.”

Feiglin and Tamar Zandberg of the liberal Meretz party have proposed a bill that would legalize marijuana and ease access to it for medical use.

Last week, Feiglin spoke in the Knesset about his wife’s battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Seriously ill Israelis have difficulty gaining access to medical marijuana, including in drop form.
