The First Arab-Israeli Joint Conference on Peace and Drugs Policy

Marc Emery and Cannabis Culture Magazine are proud to sponsor this Peace Conference taking place today, Wednesday October 25th, in Jerusalem. Cannabis is a common denominator between diverse cultures and nations. Israel’s residents are the prime example of people in conflict, and Jerusalem is at the core of the problem, and possibly also the solution. The conference will bring together Arabs and Jews alike to delve into the various issues related to the legalization of marijuana and industrial hemp.
