Weed laws in Spain
When it comes to marijuana Spain is one of the most liberal countries in the world. Even though it has not legalized recreational marijuana to the extent to which some American sates have. Possession and consumption of cannabis is legal in private properties, meaning that you are allowed to smoke in your home. Some loopholes of this law have also allowed for cannabis clubs to pop up in some Spanish city, allowing members to purchase weed. If you have a small amount of weed on you, you can expect a fine of 300 euros at most, but usually the police will not give you any trouble. Selling and trafficking marijuana are serious crimes and can land you in prison.
It is best no to smoke in public spaces, but if you do, make sure that there aren’t many people around and watch out for cops, as you might be fined depending on the situation.
