Israel officially partially de-criminalized the possession of marijuana for personal use effective the night of March 31.

The move was originally approved a year ago at the urging of Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan. It changes the laws of drug enforcement so that possession of marijuana for personal use is punished with a fine rather than arrest and criminal charges.

According to Hebrew news site Walla, however, the move does not make marijuana officially legal. Up to 15 grams of marijuana is considered to be for personal use only. Possession of more than that is still considered intent to distribute, a criminal offense.
