Israel To Shut Down Its “Anti Drugs Authority” & Fire Everyone

In a surprising turn of event and after 27 years of operation – The Israeli government has decided to shut down its “Anti Drugs Authority” (The somewhat parallel of USA’s NIDA and of the DEA in some minor aspects) – Its leading organization for the “war against drugs ” and fire everyone who worked there according to the Israeli “Cannabis magazine” who published the official documents released by the government which announced the decision.

After many years of scaremongering,  encouraging harsher sentences for drugs convicts in courts and the persecution of cannabis and medical cannabis users it was decided that the authority will be shut down following a high profile bribery case and endless waste of money who showed no positive results over time in any of its defined goals over the past 30 years such as reducing drug use, abuse, dealing, harm reduction or drug related violence – mostly by providing assistance to law enforcement and publishing misleading and not once dangerous campaigns about the dangers of drugs – for example am outrages  TV commercial in the 90’s claiming that if you tried weed, you might as well try heroin since they are “drugs” – and drugs are the same.

The new minister of public security, Gilad Erdan uncovered the full document explaining the steps that will be taken to complete the surprising move until April 1th 2016 (and its not an April fools joke!)

The document which is titled “The cancellation of The Anti Drugs Authority” specifies the new legislation which will put an end to the “useless” organization, among other points it mentions that the ADA will be shut down completely and all its responsibilities will be transferred to the ministry of public security. With the closure, all workers will be let go – from the chairman and CEO (who was not Dismissed yet), his Replacement Deputy and PR spokesman all the way down to the last employee.

“In order to coordinate and improve the war on violence and drug abuse its suggested to to cancel the current law and close the authority which in turn will transfer its responsibilities to ministry of public security” – The document says. “Following that, all employees will be let go and the scheduled date to complete the process is set to April 1th 2016 to enable enough time for re organization”.

The official decision to close the Authority will be held at August 19 2015 when the in charge ministers committee will all vote in favor of the decision. The decision is expected to save over 20 million ILS each year in tax payers money (Over 5 Million USD).

Since 20 Million ILS is not considered to be a significant portion in the ministry of public security overall budget – many wondered, including in the ADA itself if this was the main reason for the closure and not the high profile corruption investigation which was published recently and involved the Authority CEO, Yair Geller, Among others from the “Israeli Beytiynu Party” – According to Cannabis Magazine who is considered to be a main source for Israeli drug related news and harm reduction.

The document goes on and specify the required law changes and the upcoming related updates of the “Anti-Drug Abuse Act” – And it seems that this way or another, the authority who was notorious for publishing lies and promoting failed policy in combating drug abuse will be put to rest and the wasted money will be directed at better causes, according to the minister decision.

This comes only weeks after the Israeli police chief Yohanan danino said, along with other public figures and members of the Knesset that the time has come to reconsider the current policies related to the criminalization of cannabis users.

This step will hopefully set a milestone in the right direction of ending the war on drugs or at least the decriminalization of cannabis and better spending of public funds, we would love to see other countries doing the same and stop the endless waste of money by similar organization who helps no one.

  1. so happy! as an israeli. hopefully this is a move in the direction of enlightenment and real drug problems treatment!
    btw
    in Hebrew it was called “The Authority for The War on Drugs” so just getting ride of that name is positive!

  2. Wonderful step in the right direction by Isreal on the world wide hypocricy of incarcerating people for choosing what they put in their body.

    Now if Isreal would only end the Apartheid system as S. Africa did then it would be a model country.

  4. Sooner or later reality unmasks the lies of the DEA and similar organizations such as the Anti Drugs “Authority” (that sounds ironic now). Finally the Israeli government recognized this, great news! Now let’s hope they start a policy of harm reduction, regulation and legalization.

  6. U do realise it was april’s 1st right?

    anyhow, Oct 17th 2016, things are as bad as ever

  7. Great News for Israel! Hopefully other countries will follow suit. Especially the United States DEA. The US government gives them billions every year when we have the FBI, Border and Custom Patrol, and other law enforcement agencies that help stop drugs from getting into our country and taking down high profile drug dealers and criminal enterprises. Why pay billions every year to the DEA when we have all of them. I really hate the DEA and the FDA in this country.I hate the DEA and FDA so much that i cant even begin to describe or explain how much i hate them. They make everyone in the country think their doing whats best for our health and our safety when in reality thats complete bullshit! The FDA only cares abut one thing, PROFITS! Why else do you think they are trying to ban vaping and put all the small businesses out of business because the tobacco company has had to pay certain states for years in order to sell and advertise tobacco and our government would get the millions of dollars up front. Now the only way the big tobacco companies would continue to pay millions of dollars to these states is if the sale of tobacco never went below a certain percentage and what the fuck do you think happened. Since more and more people are switching to vaping because it is proven to be AT LEAST 95% safer than tobacco there has been a huge decline in tobacco sales all over the country and a huge decline in teen smoking rates. Now you would think since the FDA claims their most important priority is public health and safety that they would be happy and amazed by this news, right? WRONG! Their more concerned about the states not getting that money from the Big Tobacco Companies. So what happened next, the big tobacco companies pressured the FDA to ban vaping so the FDA came out with regulations that they assured everyone was not a ban on vaping but rather just regulations. But thats exactly what it is a ban, a complete prohibition because now any business that sells vapor products or eliquids will have to pay around $1 million per product to be submitted and then its not even a guarantee the FDA could still refuse them after they spent all their money. So if a business sells 10 different flavors of ejuice and those 10 flavors come in 6 different nicotine strengths that means if that business wants to sell those flavors with all the different nicotine strengths they would have to pay $60 million just to see if the FDA will approve them to sell their products.(American dream my ass!) So since at least 80% of the vaping industry is mom and pop small businesses they will end up having to close their business because theres no way they can afford to pay that especially since it doesnt even guarantee they would be approved. So whats going to happen? The Big Tobacco Companies are going to completely take over the vaping industry. They have more than enough money to pay the FDA’s ridiculous PMTA cost’s. I dont know about all of you but that doesnt look like the FDA’s number one priority is our health and safety but you be the judge of that. As for the DEA i dont hate them near as much as the FDA but i do hate them. Even though theres scientific evidence that marijuana helps with so many health problems including pain management. Now the DEA has been saying for years that theres an opioid epidemic in our country and more and more people are taking opiate pain medication. So they went and rescheduled hydrocodone from a schedule 3 to a schedule 2 so, in their words, make it harder to get. All that did was screw hundreds of thousands of pain management patients out of getting their medicine. Doctors all over the country took their patients off their medicine that many had been prescribed for 10-20 years and passed all their drug tests and pill counts. But because of the DEA the doctors are afraid to help people that actually need the medication. Thats all that they accomplished by rescheduling hydrocodone. That and the number of people using heroin and the number of heroin overdoses increased over 200% after they rescheduled hydrocodone. 200%!!!! The DEA continues to push and scare doctors into cutting back their opiate pain med prescriptions and continues to make it harder for patients who need the opiate pain meds even after they see what they caused from rescheduling hydrocodone. Now you would think that since the DEA are always saying how bad the opiate epidemic is and that its getting worse that since its scientifically proven that marijuana helps with chronic pain they would have rescheduled marijuana to a schedule 2. They say how bad the opiate epidemic is getting but yet when they have a solution right in front of them they dont use it. Now again to me that DOES NOT seem like their main priority is our safety but again you can be the judge of that. These are all 100% facts. With all the fake news now a days I know its hard to believe which ones are true and which ones are lies but I can assure you that everything I just wrote is true. Ive been reading and doing research for over 7 months now so I can tell you with 100% confidence that this is what are FDA and DEA are doing.
