Israeli nursing home prescribes medical marijuana

  • Categories: FeaturedWorld

The Hadarim Geriatric Home in Israel has been prescribing medical marijuana to some residents with treatment-resistant conditions.

“What does it do? It makes me tranquil and less uptight. I’m able to take it easy, and I feel restful. Before that my hands were in pain, like someone suffering from Parkinson’s disease,” said one elderly man who was prescribed marijuana said. “It stopped after three months. My hands don’t shake anymore, and it’s totally different.”

The Israeli Ministry of Health has allowed the limited use of marijuana since 2008.
