Capital Markets Conference
Using Cannabis at Home Should not Lead to a Criminal Record, Says Former Israeli Police Chief
Currently the chairman of medical cannabis company Together Pharma, Yohanan Danino spoke at Calcalist’s Capital Markets Conference Wednesday
“The means of production are there, the farms are there, the bio-technological level is advanced, the manufacturing facilities linked to the farms are top notch,” Danino said.
Pharmaceutical companies are reluctant to enter the field of medical cannabis for financial reasons and the difficulty of patenting developments, but that is going to change as more and more countries legalize the medical use of the plant, he said.
“I am against legalization (of cannabis) but I believe the law must be adjusted—I do not think that a normal citizen should have a criminal record for using cannabis at home,” Danino said.
