Cannabis in Barcelona
As of 2016 to obtain cannabis in Barcelona the best and safest method is to become a registered member of a private Cannabis Social Club also known as a Social Cannabis Association.
Around 400 of these social clubs, called in Spanish “Asociaciones Cannabicos”, exist in the city of Barcelona alone. WeBeHigh.org has recently been featured in the NYTimes article by Suzanne Daley titled Marijuana Clubs Rise Out of Decades-Old Spanish Laws.
As far as where to buy quality cannabis in Barcelona, you must become a registered member to a cannabis club in Barcelona. However, most of these clubs are intended ONLY for local residents and admittance into one as a foreigner and non-resident can be very tricky and in some cases impossible.
You can’t just walk into a cannabis social club in Spain (especially the real ones who have the highest grade product) and expect to become a member and buy weed.
So how do I find marijuana in Barcelona?
You must be referred by an existing member and also meet specific requirements. These include being 18+, stating a residential address in Spain, claiming recreational or medicinal use, stating the quantity of cannabis you consume monthly, and signing waivers stating you will abide by club rules. It will also cost you a reasonable membership fee, around 20-30 euros for a one year membership.

Cannabis Laws and Legislation in Spain
Spain’s constitution gives considerable protection to what people do in the privacy of their homes and private places.
“The Spanish law says that personal behavior in a private place, and this includes private land and outbuildings, is protected by the constitution,” “The controversial issues are that police are allowed to determine if what you are doing is personal or if it is meant for distribution, which is illegal, they are also allowed to put a fine on you if your cannabis activities or possession are outside of your private domain.”
Drug use and possession for personal use do not constitute a criminal offense under Spanish law. However, public consumption can be penalized with administrative fines.
Public possession of less than two ounces of cannabis is not a criminal offense, although heavy administrative fines can be levied (from 330Euros up to 600Euros).
Possession of more than two ounces, growing for sale, or selling are considered criminal offenses, but prison terms are not as severe as those levied in the US.
There’s some public places where it might not be legal to smoke, but most people do it. Like the beach, some of the parks, and many places with good views like Montjuic or Parc Guell. Although, we strongly recommend people always smoke in their own private place or in a private cannabis club in order to avoid fines and uncomfortable situations with police.
Barcelona Marijuana Prices
The quality of weed and hash in Barcelona can sometimes equal that of California, as it is possible to find top shelf quality in more than one place. The difference is the price, its about half of what you will have to pay in other pot havens like Amsterdam. Find a good ”private club” and you can get a large gram (1g – 1.4g) for 8 EUR and a double (2g -2.8g) for 15 EUR. On the black market, the right person will offer you even higher prices, with just one kind of quality product much worse than the ones offered in the private smokers clubs. It’s better to avoid street deals, because like Forest Gump’s mom used to say, Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.
