Israeli Pot Party Morphs Into Libertarian Organization

And they still like pot, of course


If you were expecting plumes of sticky cannabis smoke and mounds of Cheetos at the "Green Leaf New Liberal Movement" press conference in Tel Aviv on Monday, you would have been sorely disappointed.

The party, which first ran for the Knesset in the 1999 general elections, now has a platform for their fifth election campaign that is almost completely taken over by the libertarian "new liberal movement", with a clean-cut message of less government, and more personal freedom, and nary a dreadlock in sight.
