The Rise Of Medical Marijuana In Germany

The recent weeks have seen some important governmental decisions regarding the German medical marijuana program. A month or so back, a court ruling declared that the first medical marijuana patient in Germany has the right to grow his own medicine at home. This ruling is seen as a precedent for all other patients and has prompted action within the German Health Ministry to come up with clearer regulations regarding medical marijuana.

Currently, there are 650 patients in Germany. The Health Ministry’s action will hopefully create a more streamlined system for obtaining one’s medical marijuana permission, as well as, implement a supply system that is able to properly serve the rising amount of patients in Germany, especially as the knowledge benefits of medical cannabis  will only increase over time.

That all being said, medical marijuana patients in Germany can currently acquire medical marijuana directly from a German pharmacy. In fact, it is quite easy. The problem is that the Dutch government, who currently supplies Germany with their medical marijuana, cannot keep up with the demand, thus, putting the emphasis and onus on the German government to license private growers in Germany. Things are changing quickly in Europe’s largest economy and it seems that they are on their way to having a robust medical marijuana program.

FDA Simplifies Compassionate Use of Experimental Drugs, But Medical Marijuana Is Tricky

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, June, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Terminally ill patients will soon have to cut through less red tape to get permission from the federal government to use experimental medications, including cannabis, in some states, to ease the suffering in the final days of their life.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced a new compassionate use policy intended to make it easier for physicians to submit the necessary paperwork to gain access to experimental drugs for patients inflicted with serious or immediately life-threatening conditions for which there are no other treatments available.

Urge Ohio Governor Kasich To Sign Medical Marijuana Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Ohio is one step away from legalizing medical marijuana. The Ohio Legislature recently passed a bill that would legalize medical marijuana. The change isn’t perfect, but it’s better than nothing, and it will help at least some patients. Exactly how many? That’s anyone’s guess right now. But one thing is for sure, if the Governor doesn’t sign the bill, NO patients will be helped. Below is a legislative alert that I received today. If you live in Ohio, contact your Governor and show your support:

Thanks to countless supporters from across the state, on May 25, the Ohio Senate followed the House’s lead and approved Ohio’s medical marijuana bill — HB 523. It will soon be sent to Gov. Kasich’s desk for his signature.ohio sign

Please ask Gov. Kasich to sign HB 523 so that seriously ill Ohioans can access this safe and effective treatment.

HB 523, sponsored by Rep. Stephen Huffman (R-Tipp City), allows patients with certain qualifying conditions to access medical marijuana from state-licensed dispensaries, so long as their doctors recommend it for treatment. Gov. Kasich said he will support a medical marijuana program if it’s “a good bill,” but he hasn’t specifically addressed HB 523.

While we are very optimistic that the governor will sign this bill, he should hear from some of the 90% of Ohio voters who support this compassionate measure.

Though the bill is far from perfect, it is an enormous improvement over current law, and would make Ohio the 25th state to adopt a workable medical marijuana law. This important bill deserves our support.
