The tender for medical cannabis producers within Germany could suffer an additional setback, as another lawsuit has been filed against the application process.

The German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfarM) disclosed a lawsuit filed in the Dusseldorf Higher Court. Currently the deadline to apply, which was previously pushed from October 22 to November 5, still sits at December 11. However a win for the plaintiff could result in the entire process starting over.

According to BfarM, the case is expected to be decided around April 2019. As a result, the agency moved the date for final commitment from the companies to grow to April.

The process, which has attracted major firms like Tilray, Cronos, Aurora, and Canopy, seems to be going in circles, as it was originally started in 2017 but then delayed until March 2018 after a plaintiff successfully sued the government over the process.

Marijuana producers around the world, and especially those from Canada, are eagerly awaiting a chance to get into the potentially massive German medical marijuana market. Under the process, there are 13 contracts requesting 200 kilograms of medical marijuana to start up for grabs, with a cap of five contracts for any one company.
