Cannabis in Spain

Spain is one of the countries in Europe with the highest consumption of cannabis. Spanish cannabis laws are also known as being very liberal, with partial legalization in place. Due to a loophole in the Spanish law, cannabis is legal in private places, meaning that you can consume and grow some weed plants in your house, but not on your balcony. Public consumption and possession are not legal, but the punishment is a fine, as long as you have less than a few grams of weed on you. Because of this loophole, some Spanish cities have developed “cannabis clubs” which sell marijuana and hash to their members, similarly to Dutch cofeeshops.
