All attempts to locate a joint that took a policeman from a medical cannabis patient during a police raid on the sauna club in Tel Aviv two weeks ago failed.
On Friday night, 8.6, police raided the club in search of drugs. During the search, one of the policemen confiscated a joint from a file of M., a patient licensed to use cannabis.
M. turned to the policeman and explained to him that the Joint was under the Ministry of Health's license in accordance with all the procedures, but his words fell on deaf ears.
"The policeman asked to open Locker so I gave him the key," says M. in a conversation with Cannabis Magazine. "He asked if there were any illegal things in Locker, so I told him not, that I have confirmation of what Locker has."
But M. was surprised to discover that the policeman was not interested in the license at all. "When I suggested he see my license he refused and just took the joint and told me that a fine would be sent by mail," he describes.
The next day M. decided to go to the police station, where he asked to clarify the details of the incident. He was surprised to discover that the incident was not recorded at the police stations, according to the dispatcher.
When Cannavis asked the police spokesmen to locate the details of the incident, the police asked M. to come back to the police station and discuss this with a VIP officer.
To his surprise, even after the conversation with the officer, he was told that the Joint could not be located, which immediately raised the suspicion that the policeman had taken the Joint without registering the procedure as required.
The police, in contrast to what is customary, refuse to give any official response to the incident and insist not to answer questions about why the Joint was taken, how it was used, and why it is not sitting for the patient.
According to M., he intends to file a civil suit against the policeman who took a joint that he held under the license of the Ministry of Health.
The police refused to give a response.
