Aurora Cannabis Commends Germany's Landmark Legalization Achievement

Aurora Cannabis Inc., a Canadian based leading global medical cannabis company, applauds the German government’s final endorsement of cannabis legalization, marking a significant step forward in bolstering patient access to medical cannabis with the official passing of the Cannabis Act.

This change presents long overdue reform in favour of a more accessible medical cannabis market and commitment to patients. This reform follows the progressive change in leading countries like Canada and will serve as a benchmark for global expansion.

Germany’s reform brings significant advancements in patient access to medical cannabis and a much-needed liberal approach to cannabis that we have advocated in favour of,” emphasized Dirk Heitepriem, Vice President, External Affairs, Aurora Europe, GmbH. “As a market leader, Aurora has been a steadfast supporter of patients. With cannabis de-scheduling, more patients gain access to treatment, reinforcing our dedication to patient outreach and comprehensive access to quality medical cannabis. Today’s improved access underscores our commitment to see progressive change.”

Alongside the cultural significance of Germany’s advancements in cannabis legalization, these developments offer a distinct opening for Aurora, a leading provider of medical cannabis in Germany, to enhance its established footprint in the country.

The reclassification of cannabis as a non-narcotic is poised to inspire more patients to actively consult with their physician regarding medical cannabis, facilitating greater access, education, and awareness for medical cannabis. Aurora once again congratulates the German government on the successful passing of cannabis law reforms that provide for improved patient care.
