Advocates Consider COVID-19 Pandemic Opportunity to Push To Legalize Cannabis In Spain

Cannabis clubs in Spain are prising open their doors as the country enters the second phase of lockdown de-escalation. But campaigners say socio-economic impacts of the shutdown prove cannabis is an accepted norm of mainstream Spanish society, and private weed clubs should be allowed to dispense like pharmacies if illicit market forces are to be defeated once and for all. 

Spain’s first cannabis club opened in 2001, providing a legal loophole for consumption in private spaces, which, according to campaigners, has helped reduce illicit market sales.

Loophole Legalization: How Spain’s Cannabis Clubs Came to Be

They say that rules were made to be broken, and Spain’s cannabis clubs are the perfect example. Exploiting legal ambiguities has been a part of human existence since the inception of rules, but some loopholes are just way cooler than others.

A common misconception of Europe is that there are countries, or locations, where cannabis is entirely legal. Technically this isn’t true at all. Not even with the coffee shops in the Netherlands, Christiana in Denmark, or Spain’s cannabis social clubs. Technically cannabis is not fully legal in any of these places, yet all of these places have legal loopholes, or a government willing to turn a blind eye. In the case of cannabis clubs throughout Spain, it’s an interesting legal framework that put it all into place.

The coronavirus has caused a rise in cannabis prices in Spain

There is no freedom of movement, there is no justification for being on the streets and the distribution of goods creates numerous problems. That is why, at the moment, hashish and cannabis cost twice to three times as much as they did just ten days ago. If at that time one gram was around €5 or €6, now it easily exceeds €10 and even reaches €15.

The main reason for the price increases is the lack of merchandise

Currently it is much more difficult to move large or small quantities of hashish or cannabis. Drug traffickers have a hard time making a deal without attracting attention. In fact, the Civil Guard has thwarted two shipments on Malaga’s beaches since the state of alarm began nine days ago.

The court ruled that “at home, small-scale cultivation activities are to be considered excluded from the application of the penal code,” according to the New York Times.

Spanish-made first THC-free marijuana seeds to launch in US

Hemp farmers in the United States are being introduced to the first THC-free cannabis seeds, developed by Spanish company Hemp Trading in partnership with the Polytechnic University of Valencia.

The Panakeia seeds, which contain none of the psychoactive compound THC but are high in CBG content (18%), are to be produced and distributed in the US by Tesoro Genetics and Front Range Biosciences.

CBG or cannabigerol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid present in marijuana in lower amounts than THC and CBD but is presumed to be equally beneficial.
