The German Parliament Voted Unanimously In January To Allow Prescriptions For Medical Marijuana , And May Probably Go As Far As To Cover Cannabis Under Their Existing Health Care Plans.

Attorney Daniel Bogden, the Cannabis Cup is somehow not protected from federal interference. According to Bogden: I am informed that the tribal council is moving forward with the planned marijuana event referred to as the 2017 High Times Cannabis Cup because it is under the impression that the so-called Cole Memorandum and subsequent memoranda from the Department of Justice permit marijuana use, possession and distribution Marijuana Stocks on tribal lands when the state law also permits it. Unfortunately, this is an incorrect interpretation of the Departments position on this issue. Federal authorities have intervened directly with our host venue, the land of the Moapa Band of Paiutes, the message said. Our upcoming Cannabis Cup event in Nevada on March 4-5 can proceed as planned, but vendors, guests, performers and attendees are advised to comply with all local, state, and federal laws regarding the use and distribution of cannabis and cannabis related products. Many marijuana reform advocates were wary of Trumps pot policy coming into the White House, and now those fears have become a reality. Appointing the notoriously anti-marijuana Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General was the first glaring action, followed by disparaging comments from White House press secretary Sean Spicer blaming the countrys opioid epidemic on legal pot laws. If this startling trend continues, America will surely fall behind as the worlds leader in cannabis legalization. But several countries are more than willing to carry the torch, most notably Germany. The German Parliament voted unanimously in January to allow prescriptions for medical marijuana , and may probably go as far as to cover cannabis under their existing health care plans. Those who are severely ill need to get the best possible treatment and that includes health insurance funds paying for cannabis as a medicine for those who are chronically ill if they cant be effectively treated any other way, said health minister Hermann Grohe.
