Marijuana, also known as cannabis, is not fully legal in Spain, but it is decriminalized for personal use and cultivation. Possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use is considered a minor offense and typically results in a fine, rather than criminal charges. However, the sale and distribution of marijuana is still illegal and can result in criminal charges.
The use, possession, and cultivation of marijuana for personal use is allowed in private spaces, such as private homes, and also in private members-only cannabis clubs. These clubs operate under a loophole in Spanish law that allows for the private consumption of cannabis within the confines of a private association. It is important to note that cannabis clubs are not allowed to sell or distribute cannabis to non-members.
Spain’s approach to marijuana is considered to be relatively liberal compared to other countries, but it’s important to keep in mind that laws and regulations can change over time.
