German residents now permitted to grow marijuana
Published on Jul 22, 2014
In a recent court ruling, certain German residents will now be permitted to grow their own marijuana to alleviate chronic pain. While this is a step forward, it still requires a "thorough and individual examination" of each case.
“The court says the three demonstrated they could not combat their pain any other way and could not afford to purchase medical marijuana, which is permitted in Germany but not usually covered by the country's health insurance system.”
