DW News published this video item, entitled “Germany moves closer to legalizing cannabis | DW News” – below is their description.

As coalition talks progress here in Germany, there’s one thing the three parties hoping to govern together do agree on – legalizing cannabis.

The Social Democrats, Greens and liberals want a regulated system for the cultivation, distribution and sale of cannabis. It’s not just consumers who could benefit – but also the pharmaceutical industry. Germany would follow Luxembourg as the second EU member state to legalize cannabis.
