From spring 2017, the German government will pay for sick people to access cannabis. Germany is the powerhouse of European politics. So a big JA JA JA from them is the beginning of the end of the nonsense that was cannabis prohibition. Big money blocked the plant, and years of amazing activist work has helped bring pot back to the people.
Health Minister Hermann Groehe said; “Our aim is that seriously ill people are treated in the best possible way.” First the very sick, then the sick and then those who don’t want to get sick will be legally allowed cannabis. The German government will grow cannabis themselves at a secure location. They will join a growing number of European countries that have a medical cannabis program.
Now it is your turn, do you support your local cannabis club? Are you a member of a patients association? Cannabis is going main stream and there are a million uses for the plant. Together with hemp, they provide a natural alternative to our current toxic options. Germany’s yes on cannabis is vital, so is the support we show to activists trying to nail down the end of prohibition all over Europe.
