They also said they will spend much of the day Tuesday sending uniformed and undercover police to kiosks around Tel Aviv and other cities to enforce regulations against selling alcohol and tobacco to minors as well as establishments selling so-called “kiosk drugs” like fake cannabinoid “Mr. Nice Guy” and the speed pills “Hagigat”.

Police will be deployed at mobile checkpoints in and around Israeli cities and major junctions, checking for drunk drivers, drugs, and weapons, they added Tuesday.
