Israel's Health Ministry has established a new, advanced computerized interface to process applications for a medical marijuana license.

The system allows for a doctor or the patient him/herself to enter their request and accompanying documents. After the documents are processed and approved, the patient can print the license and prescription and bring them directly to a pharmacy, where they will be able to obtain marijuana products.
