Legislation: Spain’s constitution gives considerable protection to what people do in the privacy of their homes.”

“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, and they are also allowed to arrest you if your cannabis activities or possession are outside of your private domain.”

ARSEC – the country’s premier marijuana legalization organization

Law enforcement: N/A

Where to buy marijuana: There’s at least one head shop with The Leaf displayed prominently on a flag outside. I don’t remember exactly where it was, but it was close to the beach, and I think, the aquarium. But they had a plant growing in the store and you could buy seeds. I asked about some bud, and the guy at the store told me to come back later, and the deal was made.

Marijuana prices: I paid 15 euro for a small, say week-long, stash of bud (if you don’t smoke a lot).

Marijuana brands: I don’t know which strain but it was good pot.
