As much of the world relaxes its laws on cannabis, in part because of its use in the treatment of diseases from cancer to epilepsy, German health minister Hermann Grohe is to present draft legislation to the German cabinet suggesting the country’s own laws are changed.

Mr Grohe said that medical cannabis would be legalised in early 2017, and added that Germany will important marijuana until specially-supervised plantations can be established.

‘Our goal is that seriously ill patients are treated in the best possible way,’ he said.

‘Without wishing to pre-judge the work of the Bundestag [lower house of parliament], it is likely that the law will come into force in the spring of 2017.’

Grohe said, however, that he believes cannabis is ‘not an inoffensive substance’ and stressed that it would only be available from pharmacies on prescription.

It’s time the UK followed suit surely??
