Medicinal marijuana will be legal in Germany by early next year.
Those who do qualify will need a prescription. And the country's federal health minister said he wants insurance companies to help patients who can't afford it.
Still, the country's federal drug commissioner said the drug isn't harmless. Despite the victory for marijuana advocates, full legalization is probably a long way off.
A 2014 poll found fewer than a third of Germans supported legalization.
The tide might be turning in the U.S., though. Fifty-eight percent of Americans said they supported full legalization in a Gallup poll last October.
