Comment: Member of the Knesset Sharan Haskel from the Likud submitted a bill to cease incriminating marijuana users in Israel. The legal amount, however, is limited to 15 seeds or 5 grams of marijuana for personal use and the penalty for the possession of a greater amount is a fine of 1,500 shekels.
Answer: Such restrictions are useless since no one can enforce them. I am sure the use of marijuana will be permitted everywhere and the infrastructure of drug dealing will decline and disappear.
Question: Will the state take this responsibility?
Answer: The state will not take responsibility for that, but will only allow the free consumption and growth, and that’s all. Anyone will be able to grow and consume marijuana, and thus many will seat peacefully at home and smoke.
The outcome of the technical revolution we are undergoing will be that the next generation will sit at home idle and 90% of the people will be redundant.
Then we will have to tell people about the meaning of life and gradually discourage them from using drugs. I believe that it is actually thanks to the use of marijuana that people will feel what a dark hole they are living in.
Question: Why will this lead to the question about the meaning of life?
Answer: Because a person will face a clear and sharp question: Do I want to cut myself off from this world and die while still young and healthy, or do I not want to cut myself off from the world but attain the upper world through it?
There are only two options: either to deteriorate or to ascend, and if that is the case, why would a person want to be tossed about on the level of this world?
Question: This means that he will lose interest in the corporeal world because he will see that there is nothing he can attain here, but how will he discover that there is an upper world?
Answer: It depends only on the dissemination of the wisdom of Kabbalah. But these questions will eventually come up.
I am absolutely sure that everything that happens is only in order to accelerate the development of humanity, so we shouldn’t ban or get rid of anything because it will not help. The only thing that can help is the dissemination of the wisdom of Kabbalah and knowing how to attain the Creator.
