Drug Prevention

Israeli national policy regarding the issue of drug use and abuse has three distinct but related dimensions: education and prevention, treatment, and legislation.

The Anti-Drug Authority Law (1988) established the Anti-Drug Authority of Israel whose main function is to formulate policy with regard to the prevention of drug abuse, treatment, and rehabilitation of drug addicts and enforcement of the laws and penalties pertaining to drug abuse. In addition, the Authority is to actively pursue these policies by coordinating activities between Government offices and between Government and non-government bodies in Israel that deal with drugs, to encourage and support research in the area of drug abuse, to establish ties with agencies abroad who work in this field, and to encourage the training of personnel needed to deal with the problem of drug abuse in this country.

The other relevant laws refer to the medicinal use of controlled substances - required permits and conditions of possession, registration of drug recipients; drug testing for traffic violators; drug testing among soldiers; and imposed treatment for convicted drug addicts.

Israeli drug legislation conforms to regulations of the "Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs" treaty of 1961 and its amendment of 1972, of which Israel is a signatory member, and the "Convention of Psychotropic Substances" of 1971, to which Israel abides but is not a member. The "Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances" (1988) has been signed by Israel but not yet ratified.

Student's Right to Know
