Cultural Factors Associated with Cannabis use in Israel

I am afraid that my remarks are going to be a bit parochial as they are mainly based on research done in our part of the world. However, I do feel that the findings might transcend in relevance to our region for two reasons. One is that we are situated between one of the largest cannabis producing areas in the world and this is to our north — and to our south are the traditional users of cannabis, as well as origin, as being notorious recently as one of the largest exporters of cannabis. Well, of course, I am relating myself to hashish only, which is the commodity in our part of the world which as you know the tetrahydrocanabinol content is something like eight to ten times higher than marihuana.
