Lebanon war causes pot shortage in Israel
Who'd a thunk it? (via Reuters): "Israel's recent war w/ Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon has sent cannabis prices sky high in the Jewish state. Boosted security on the Lebanon frontier has brought a drastic reduction in drug smuggling, making the cost of cannabis in Israel go up 8-fold, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported." I guess for some Israelis, this war has been a major loss and bummer, huh?
