According to the Jewish newspaper The Forward, Hezbollah funds much of its activities by smuggling hash into Israel from Lebanon.
Although hash smoking is very popular with Israeli adolescents, the Hezbollah connection has many pot smokers boycotting the drug in hopes of stopping the funding of terrorism.
Some boycotters say just refraining from hash isnt enough to burn Hezbollahs money source and theyre calling on the Israeli government to decriminalize hash.
They figure if the drug is made legal, the demand for underground sources would vanish and Hezbollahs hash monopoly would collapse.
However, not every hash smoker believes in the boycott. One Jerusalem drug dealer had this reaction: Roll that sþþþ, light that sþþþ, smoke that sþþþ.
