Cannabis decriminalization bill shelved for Erdan committee

MK Sharren Haskel (Likud) pulled her bill to decriminalize personal cannabis use Monday, after Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan agreed to form a committee to examine the policy.

Erdan opposed Haskel’s bill, which was meant to be brought to a vote in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation.

After several weeks of negotiations, Erdan and Haskel agreed to form a committee to "examine enforcement policy towards personal use of cannabis without changing the existing social norms about cannabis and general drug use."
