On Monday, January 26, MAPS funded Mimi Peleg of Wo/Mens Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM) in Santa Cruz, CA, to travel to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada to meet with Philippe Lucas, founder of the Vancouver Island Compassion Society (VICS). Mimi and Philippe are advising a MAPS-supported medical marijuana production facility in Israel, licensed by the Israeli Ministry of Health. MAPS donated $15,000 as a matching grant to Yohai Golan’s medical marijuana production facility that is giving marijuana away for free to Ministry of Health-approved patients under the Israeli Health Minister’s guidelines. MAPS is also sponsoring Mimi Peleg and WAMM’s founder and president Val Corral to visit Israel next month for in-person consultation. An anonymous donor is covering expenses and Val and Mimi’s trip to Israel.
