Israel gives green light to decriminalize marijuana useBy Maayan Lubell JERUSALEM (Reuters) – The Israeli government voted on Sunday in favor of decriminalizing recreational marijuana use, joining some U.S. states and European countries who have adopted a similar approach.

According to the new policy, which must still be ratified by parliament, people caught smoking marijuana would be fined rather than arrested and prosecuted.
