Bong sales down in Haifa

Israel is fighting a ruthless enemy, so we’re told. Sacrifice is required. Step forward:

Young Israeli activists are fighting back against Hezbollah — with a boycott on smoking hash.

Hashish, or oil resin from marijuana plants, is one of the primary recreational drugs available in Israel. It’s smoked in much the same way that marijuana is, and because the marijuana available in Israel is generally of a low quality, hashish is the preferred choice of most of the country’s pot smokers.

And it’s being smuggled in by Hezbollah.

“A Persian-backed terrorist organization is the primary supplier of hashish to the Israeli market today,” activist and Jerusalem resident Dan Sieradski said on his blog, OrthodoxAnarchist.com. “And this is why, with a heavy heart, I am officially boycotting hashish, effective immediately.”… 

It’s hard to underestimate the possible consequences of reduced pot smoking on the Israeli psyche.

The war is now lost.
