germany-police-cannabis_copyCity councillors in Düsseldorf, capital of Germany's most populous state, are following Berlin in planning a pilot project in which cannabis could be sold legally to adults. The move is the result of a joint push by the three parties which form the city's governing coalition, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), Greens and Free Democratic Party (FDP), the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports. Now civil servants in Düsseldorf must apply to the Federal Institute for Medicines (BfArM) for a license.
