Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week did not rule out the possibility of supporting the legalization of marijuana.

“I am now looking into the matter you brought up,” he said in response to a question about the subject on the LikudTV webcast that can be viewed on his Facebook page. “I will give you an answer soon. It’s possible that it will happen.”

Additionally, Netanyahu spoke of the previous government’s move to permit using medical marijuana, in addition to exporting it.

Last year, Israel lessened the penalties for those using cannabis. The law is scheduled to take effect on April 1.
