MESSAGE OF THE CANNABIS SOCIAL CLUB OF GRAZALEMA, SOUTH OF SPAIN

FOR THE RECOGNITION OF A MODEL BASED ON (AMONG OTHERS) SOLIDARITY AND SELF MANAGEMENT

1 September 2014

Published on 2 September 2014  by encod
The failure of drug policy in the world is now recognized by many people. Experiments have started in all countries where the use of cannabis is not criminalized. In the Netherlands, where coffeeshops never got to solve the problem of the "back door" (back door) through which cannabis enters without control. The product is sold at a high price without quality assurance. In Uruguay recently a project has been proposed to produce and distribute through the state, which is cheaper than on (...)

Cannabis Social Clubs in Belgium: Organizational strengths and weaknesses, and threats to the model
Published on 29 August 2014  by encod
Cannabis Social Clubs can be found in many countries, but the term often covers very different empirical realities. Inspired by the Spanish CSCs and similarly taking advantage of a grey area in the Belgian cannabis legislation, Belgian cannabis activists set up the first Belgian CSC in 2006, and there are now at least 5 Belgian CSCs. This paper’s main objective is to analyse the (internal) strengths and weaknesses and the (external) opportunities and threats of the model, as it exists (...)

Europe’s Latest Grass-Roots Movement: Cannabis Social Clubs

19 August 2014

by Laura Secourun Palet

Gabriela walks into a large, dimly lit apartment, goes to a counter, buys a bag of sativa and sits on the sofa with her friends, joint in hand, like in Amsterdam. Except this is not Amsterdam. This is Barcelona, and the open sale of marijuana is illegal.

Published on 20 August 2014  by encod
Club Cannabis is a sexy model in a legal gray area. The social clubs operate openly in countries where personal consumption of small amounts of weed is not prosecuted, and growing that small amount might not technically break the law, either. Pair quasi-legal personal consumption with the right of association, and you have a pretty sneaky way around marijuana prohibition. As long as the total amount grown and distributed matches the sum of individual legal limits — presto! — it’s not illegal (...)

Catalonian government tightens up rules around cannabis social clubs

4 August 2014

By Ashifa Kassam

Catalonia’s public health agency has proposed strict new measures to regulate cannabis clubs in the region, amid claims that Barcelona is on its way to rivalling Amsterdam as a smoker’s haven.

Published on 5 August 2014  by encod
Amsterdam has tightened restrictions on cannabis sales just as the number of clubs in Spain has proliferated from some 40 in 2010 to more than 700 today, say smokers’ groups. The Catalan capital is home to more than half of these clubs. From swanky clubs that span three floors to others with a small room and a few plastic chairs, the clubs take advantage of a provision in Spain’s drug laws that allow marijuana to be grown and consumed for private use. The clause has turned Spain – and (...)

Cannabis social clubs in Germany — Are they even possible?

6 march 2014

By Micha

Germany is a country characterised by associations and clubs

Published on 8 March 2014  by encod
All of Europe is straining under the crisis. Well… maybe not all of Europe. An idea developed by some indomitable friends of hemp friends is flying straight in the face of the crisis. The first cannabis social clubs were established more than 10 years ago in Spain and today, every medium or large Spanish city centre has one. Even in Belgium, a legal cannabis social club by the name of “Trekt uw Plant” is in operation and in Uruguay, where cannabis has been made legal once again, this type of (...)
