The German ministry of health just released a new draft(in German) of regulations for medical cannabis. Instead of pretending cannabis is a problem, the Germans are preposing cannabis be treated for what it is, an amazing new medical discovery. The draft regulations would place cannabis in the same category as other prescription medications.
Great news for patients but terrible news for powerful, money hungry pharmaceutical corporations. If the regulations are adopted, it will mean that any doctor in the country will be able to prescribe medical cannabis. Most importantly, the draft proposal also says that cannabis should be covered by your insurance company.
