Yo, what’s good? It’s ya boy Dan, and today we’re talking about whether weed is legal in Spain. Now, Spain is a pretty chill country when it comes to smoking weed, but it ain’t all the way legal yet. So if you’re planning on taking a trip to Spain and wanna know about the cannabis laws, then keep reading.
First off, let’s talk about medical marijuana. It’s still illegal in Spain, which is pretty whack if you ask me. But on the bright side, personal use of weed has been decriminalized, so you can grow and smoke your own weed as long as it’s for personal use only.
Now, before you start rolling up a fat joint and hitting the town, make sure you understand the laws surrounding cannabis. You don’t wanna get caught up with the po-po.
So let’s break it down. Possession of weed for personal use is no longer a criminal offense in Spain. That means you won’t get into any trouble if you’re smoking some herb in the privacy of your own home. But if you get caught smoking in public, then that’s a different story. And if you’re a minor, don’t even think about it. You’ll be sent to rehab faster than you can say “pass the dutchie.”
But here’s the thing: there’s no clear law on how much weed you can possess at home. So basically, as long as you’re not growing a whole farm in your backyard, then you should be good.
But selling weed is still illegal in Spain. That’s considered drug trafficking and can land you in prison for up to three years. And if you’re selling harder drugs, then that time can increase up to six years or even 21 years if you’re dealing in large quantities.
Growing your own weed is technically legal as long as it’s for personal use only. But if you’re growing too many plants, then the authorities might assume you’re a drug trafficker and come after you.
So what are your options? Well, there are cannabis clubs all over Spain where you can smoke and chill with other stoners. These clubs allow public consumption of weed, but they’re not exactly legal either. The first club was started back in 1991, and now there are over 500 clubs in the country. But these clubs have some rules that you gotta follow if you wanna join.
For starters, the clubs have to be registered in the regional directory. And to become a member, you have to pay a membership fee and be referred by another member. Minors aren’t allowed in the clubs at all.
And once you become a member, there’s a strict limit on how much weed you can consume per day. You can’t take any home with you either – it all has to be consumed on the premises of the club.
But let’s say you need weed for medical purposes – what are your options? Well, there’s only one medical marijuana product available in Spain called Sativex. And it’s pretty expensive too.
So there you have it – the lowdown on weed in Spain. It’s not completely legal yet, but there are ways to enjoy some herb without getting into trouble. Just remember to follow the rules and stay safe out there!
