Germany: Government Moves Forward With Permitting Cultivation Of Medical Marijuana


germany medical marijuanaRight before the weekend, I saw a tweet come across my Twitter feed from Ethan Nadelmann. The tweet was of a press release dealing with the permitting of cultivation of medical marijuana by the German Government. Below is a copy of the press release. The press release is in English, but the links go to sites that are in German. I don’t speak German, so take the info for what you will, but considering it was tweeted about by Ethan, it’s good info:

The German Hemp Association welcomes the announcement by the federal government in Germany to set up a cannabis agency. This paves the way for the first cultivation of medicinal cannabis in Germany, helping not only the patients, but allowing  also new economic prospects for Germany.

The establishment of a cannabis agency is an old demand of the DHV. Only this way can Germany’s dependence on imports be terminated and supply for the patients be guaranteed.

“An easier access to cannabis as a medicine and the covering of the costs by the health insurance companies were long overdue. The fact, that the federal government has consistently  thought this issue through and is willing to permit production in Germany, pleased and surprised us. Finally, the German economy is not decoupled from the international development and can develop their own cannabis industry. We are increasingly being contacted by entrepreneurs, interested in the production of medical cannabis. We expect  a massive rising demand for Cannabis as Medicine,”said spokesman Georg Wurth from the DHV.

But the DHV continues to demand that patients themselves should be allowed to grow cannabis, if they  so wish. This relieves the health insurance companies and enables each patient to use the appropriate cannabis-strain for them. In addition, as many patients as possible should  benefit from the new rules, not only pain-patients. The range medicinal use of cannabis is great, as the current dispensations for various diseases show.

  1. I want to specially thank Rick Simpson for saving my friend’s life with his healing oil. some years back my friend Rose was diagnosed with a deadly disease cancer of the lungs, we try all medication all to no avail, we also try to do the oil our selves but we were doing more harm than worse. until I saw a post on facebook on how the cannabis oil had cured a cancer patient, I quickly mailed this email: phoenixtearsadim@gmail.com

    From that very moment we just have to give it a trier, instantly we got a reply from him asking us what the exact cancer problem that my friend Rose has, we explained every details of it to him and he told us, that his oil will heal my friend cancer problem only if we can order for it as soon as possible.
    He calculated the dosage for us to buy i think the dosage he calculated was 60grams of the oil which we ordered plus 30grams maintenance free and also with a body lotion and soap. He told us that if we order it online now by the next 48hours the medication will get to our door step through the delivery services, we decided to give it a try and behold when we did exactly 48hours of ordering the medication came to our door step through the delivery agent and deliver it to us. immediately we emailed Rick back that we have gotten the medication, and the usage instruction manual was also delivered to us. my friend Rose started the medication immediately just after a month of using Rick Simpson cannabis oil, Rose is now free from cancer problem, she is living a healthy life my utmost priority of sharing this short testimony is for those that are suffering from my kind of cancer diseases or if your friend or family members are suffering from this deadly disease, please don’t die in silence there is a cure for your cancer today don’t waste anytime further you have to email Rick Simpson directly and save your live and the lives of others

  3. Well Hillary says, “There is too much money in it.” For law enforcement. For government. For prison unions. Asset forfeiture is big business.

  4. Hey wait a minute, the insurance companies PAY FOR the cannabis treatments???

    But OUR government says there is no medical value.

    Maybe those insurance companies should talk to our infinitely intelligent leaders here in the US so they will no longer have to pay for cannabis treatments!

    “There is no medicinal use for it and all those that have been cured with cannabis in Germany are FAKE, shams, liars all of them” said our head of the DEA.(parody)

    For insurance companies to pay for cannabis it has to work and be a better value that pharmaceuticals.

    Insurance companies will only pay for legitimate, proven treatments.

  5. Closet Warrior on

    Good on ya Germany!!! Why is it that whole countries are legalizing and decrriminalizing marijuana and Israel has been using mmj in hospitals for 10 yrs while us Americans are getting the cold shoulder from our government. Ah, forgot our government are a bunch of assholes tied together. They are dragging their feet on even mmj in over 20 states-just medicinal-that’s rediculous. We could learn much from Uraguay, Mexico, Canada, Israel, England and many other models of intelligent design. What happened to our country being “The Leader into innovative and Rational thinking. For shame

  6. Progress!!! Awesome job German govt! Now if the US govt can begin to pull its head out of their ass maybe we can have the same program as Germany one day
