MK Zvika Fogel of Otzma Yehudit explained his party's demand for the Knesset's Negev and Galilee portfolio in an interview on Reshet Bet.

"We are losing territories in the Galilee and Negev. In the past this wasn't as publicized as it is today. For example, in the Negev there are currently thousands of marijuana greenhouses, which rake in millions of shekels for their owners. We want to launch a legal industry, which will open up the Negev, and allow the Bedouins to be part of it as well," he said.
