Kosher medical marijuana to go on sale in New York after firm secures Jewish dietary certification

The World Is Going Mad.

The New York company said the certification will remove the stigma that some associate with the use of the drug

There were apparently some people in New York for whom the idea of medical marijuana- in one local parlance – simply wasn’t kosher. Now they can rest easy.

This week it was announced that a company is set to start selling what is believed to be the first certified kosher medical cannabis and target the the dietary and medical needs of the largest Jewish community in the US.

Vireo Health said its non-smokable medical cannabis products have been certified as conforming to the Jewish dietary law by the Orthodox Union (OU).

“Being certified kosher by the OU will not only help us serve the dietary needs of the largest Jewish community in the United States, but also combat unfortunate stigmas associated with medical cannabis,” Ari Hoffnung, the company’s CEO, said in a statement. (Click to Article)
