Jewish Girls Gone Wild? Marijuana Lab Found in Haredi School

marijuana, jewish girls gone wild, pot at haredi school in israel, environment, news, illegal drugs, medical marijuana, israel When authorities discovered a lab full of marijuana plants in a bomb shelter beneath an all girls Orthodox Jewish school south of Tel Aviv, they proposed that outsiders must be responsible – because Haredim girls would never smoke pot, right?

A queer smell arose from the bomb shelter of the Kiryat Gat school for Haredi girls located about 35 miles south of Tel Aviv, The Jerusalem Post reports.

One teacher followed her nose, so to speak, and stumbled upon a professional growing lab in a bomb shelter below the school, which was complete with all the special lamps and irrigation technology required to grow twelve marijuana plants in a dark, enclosed space.

But here’s where it gets funny. Perhaps to divert negativity away from the Orthodox community, law enforcement officials were quick to say they will explore the possibility that a stranger to the school had coveted the space for their illegal drug operation.

In fact, they are going to launch a full-scale undercover operation to root out the bad guy (girl?) with an attitude reminiscent of that recently directed towards 269life vegan activists who protested the meat industry with decapitated animal heads scattered in visible public places in Tel Aviv and surrounding neighborhoods.

Most rabbis consider all kinds of smoking to be a form of self-endangerment, so – given marijuana’s mild mind altering qualities caused by the presence of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – it’s probably safe to say that finding a pot growing lab at an Orthodox school is pretty darn scandalous.

However, and this is the case with so much in Israel, the country has a split personality when it comes to marijuana.

Expressly illegal, though rarely penalized when used for personal consumption, the plant is legally cultivated for people suffering from chronic illness. The heavily guarded Tikkun Olam farm in the Galilee, where Jesus once walked, is the biggest source of the country’s medical marijuana.

The government dishes out special licenses to ensure those suffering from cancer and other crippling diseases can seek relief from the plant’s palliative properties.

Researchers with the Hebrew University have even developed a marijuana pill, according to the New York Times, in preparation for the day when the world is evolved enough to permit export of such a thing.

As for the girls, they’ll be on their best behavior while the cops are snooping around. Unless they found our Moroccan love potion spiced with pot?

    Why in the world would you insinuate that students at a religious girls school have done something illegal?
    Also, there are mixed messages for religious males who may be encourage to drink a leChaim & enjoy a buzz, AND be “allowed” to smoke cigarettes, yet discouraged from combining the two into marijuana cigarettes. Though I personally oppose any smoking, I asked a physician about this & he said that alcohol has a much stronger effect on the brain that marijuana.

    I wish I could fully understand why a plant which doesn’t even have that much effect on the mind is so demonized. It is not as damaging as alcohol consumption, cannot addict like alcohol or heroin. It is a mild, mind altering plant substance. Someday, I hope, world wide cultures will change toward this plant. Most of the folks who decry the use of it have never even tried it, so have no basis for their opinion. And baseless opinions are the product of small minds.
