KIEV. March 5, UNN. The Israeli Cabinet approved the decriminalization of marijuana consumption, reports UNN with reference to BBC.

The penalty will be about 270 dollars. When re-arrest it will be doubled. Third time offender will be under supervision of the authorities, but after a relatively short period will be completely free. And only in the case of the fourth “caught” will be prosecuted.
