The Federal Institute of Drug and Medical Devices is promising a price of 4.30 euros per gram Germany is starting to produce and sell medical cannabis so it can provide consumers with lower prices in pharmacies. The Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices, BfArM (Bundesinstitut für Arzneimittel und Medizinprodukte) announced on 7 July that they have commissioned three companies Aphria RX GmbH, Aurora Produktions GmbH and Demecan GmbH to grow the plant on its behalf. The Institute will later distribute it to pharmacies for 4.30 euros per gram. The prescription of medical marijuana has been legal in Germany since 2017, however, pharmacies have been getting their supply from imports, leading to unpredictable fluctuations in prices and variety of the product. This move does not ban the importation of cannabis, as BfArM does not have the legal power to do so, but, according to them, it will improve patient care.
