Ehud Barak, one of Israel’s most prominent public figures, has recently ventured into a new line of business—cannabis. In September, Barak, Israel’s most highly decorated soldier, a former general chief of staff of the Israeli military, and the country’s tenth prime minister, was appointed chairman of Israeli medical cannabis company InterCure Ltd.

Referring to his new role at the opening of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange Wednesday, Barak commented on the seemingly unlikely appointment.
Set to lead InterCure’s global expansion strategy, Barak is set to earn $10,000 for 40 hours per month and receive stock options convertible into 5% of InterCure stock, the company said in September.Following his 2012 retirement from politics, Barak entered Israel’s tech and finance sector through a number of investments. He is an early investor and chairman of the board of Israeli emergency response startup Carbyne (listed as Reporty Homeland Security Ltd.), and is also the co-founder of Tel Aviv-based cybersecurity company Toka, registered as Cybertoka Ltd.
It seems by his lately declaration & behavior that he is using a lot of this stuff :) ...
Somebody threw a lot of money at him.
Somebody believes he has connections- maybe to the US market. Strangely enough, an American ex-congressman, John Boehner, became the head of an American pot company. Looks like dreams of big big money bring out the 'best' people.
HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH.
JUST ENJOY RETIREMENT. YOU MAKE ENOUGH $$$ FROM ALL THE PENSIONS THE STATE OF ISRAEL PAYS YOU. LIFE IS SHORT.
InterCure Ltd cannabis a MEDICINE or is it legal pot ?
I trust Ehud Barak so I ask him Publicly : Is Israeli medical cannabis company < InterCure Ltd. > offering a cannabis for its mediclnal benefits OR will the InterCure Ltd. cannabis produce be capable of producing the same high as " pot " the same hallucinations , etc . Is this InterCure Ltd. cannabis a MEDICINE or is it a legal way to break into to profitable drug, or pot market ?
Again, it is all about money
Many people my age suffer multiple conditions which cannabis can alleviate,” Barak said. “They will be willing to pay good money". Of course, as usual, it is not about altruism; it is about "good money". Disgusting.
