Germany: Medical Marijuana Program Expands—Cautiously
German authorities just took the unprecedented move of allowing a medical marijuana patient to cultivate at home.
The obscurely named Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) announced on Oct. 2 that a multiple sclerosis sufferer from Mannheim, in the Baden-Württemberg state, will be permitted to grow a maximum of 130 plants a year. But the grow must be confined to an extremely restricted space in his bathroom. Terms of the permit stipulate that any leftover plants or harvested herb must be destroyed, and the buds must be kept in a “secure storage unit.”
The Mannheimer, who was not named in media accounts, had to battle through the courts even for this, arguing that he could not afford the monthly 1,500 euros he had to pay at state-approved pharmacies. Germany’s Federal Administrative Court finally ruled in April that the BfArM must “allow the claimant to grow cannabis, harvest the drug, and use it for the medical purpose of his treatment.”

Alaska Marijuana Sales Close, Pending Opening of Test Labs
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska is nearing its first legal sales of marijuana, nearly two years after voters approved the recreational use of pot by adults.
Retails stores are being permitted by the state Marijuana Control Board, and just a few hurdles remain until commercial sales begin.
The biggest obstacle is waiting for labs to test the raw product. Two labs have been licensed by the state, both in Anchorage.
