State President Reuben Rivlin has convened an urgent meeting with Health Ministry leaders following the severe crisis in the medical cannabis industry, reports Guy Lerer on Channel 13 this evening.
At the same time, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also serves as the Minister of Health, also decided to intervene in the matter and demanded that the ministry's officials immediately address the matter.
The two have recently watched videos recently released on networks showing bruised epileptic children after the Health Ministry banned the oil production that helps them.
Earlier this week, Prime Minister Sara Netanyahu's wife also posted a video in which he expressed unreserved support for medical cannabis treatment and even She hinted To criticism when she said she hoped the need for treatment would get him more easily.
Currently, the medical cannabis industry is at an unprecedented level: severe supply shortages, poor quality produce, rising prices, and attempts by senior Health Ministry officials to correct serious failures created by Chief Executive Yuval Landschaft.
Remember, the reform is based on manufacturing standards and clinical method that Landschaft has developed almost alone and is based on missing and even incorrect information - which has led to the same serious problems in the industry.
"I hope and believe that the intervention from above will bring an end to this crisis," says Lehrer.
