German parliament debates what‘s next in matter of hemp medicine in Germany
The German parliament has been debating since July, how exactly the planned amendment regarding hemp medicine shall be implemented in the next year.
Themes are the production of the required medicinal cannabis through the state-owned cannabis agency, prescription of hemp medicine as well as the question, when health insurance will reimburse the costs of medicinal cannabis – and when not. The plan is, to facilitate the access to medicinal hemp from 2017 onwards. But how this will be done in practice in detail, government now has to sort out. See the interview with Georg Wurth.
