Israeli soldiers who smoke cannabis have so far been systematically court-martialled and have received prison sentences of up to two months but the army said Wednesday that it would begin to ease up on the policy.
Danny Efroni, the general overseeing the reform, told military radio Wednesday that soldiers caught smoking marijuana (while on leave) would no longer be court-martialled nor sent to prison.
The pot-smoking soldiers would have to undergo regular tests to ascertain that, after their 'misdemeanour', they are staying away from the drug
