Cannabis Cultivation Decriminalized in Spain?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, July, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

The new "Citizen Safety Law" that took effect in Spain on July 1 is notoriously draconian, making it illegal to march on public buildings, and imposing prohibitive fines for holding any protest without a permit. It also raises the minimum penalty for public cannabis use or possession from 300 to 600 euros, with the maximum penalty set at a whopping 30,000 euros for "grave infractions." 
But even this is something of a victory, as conservatives had been pressing to raise the minimum for to 1,000 euros. And there may be a more surprising bright side. According to reports on the Medical Cannabis Spain Blog and, language was added to the section of the law dealing with cultivation, saying that it will only be punishable when it is "in visible public places." The reports state that this means cultivation behind closed doors is effectively decriminalized in Spain, as private possession has been for several years.

SEATTLE (AP) - Washington launched its second-in-the-nation legal marijuana market with just a handful of stores selling high-priced pot to long lines of customers. A year later, the state has about 160 shops open, tax revenues have soared past expectations and sales top $1.4 million per day.

And who knows - the industry might even start making some money.

But at least some relief is here: This month, two new laws take effect, one to regulate and tax medical marijuana, and one to cut Washington's three-level excise tax on pot to a single, 37-percent tax.

Despite some industry gripes and those tweaks to Washington's legal pot law, which voters passed in 2012 to legalize marijuana for adults over 21, officials and legalization backers say the state's slow and deliberate effort to regulate marijuana has been a success.

A year after stores opened on July 8, 2014, here's a look at the state of legal weed here.

The Show-Me Cannabis Foundation works tirelessly to investigate and publicize the practices and impacts of cannabis prohibition in Missouri. We look closely at the secretive and violent activities of Missouri’s multi-jurisdictional drug task forces. These task forces make a huge proportion of cannabis arrests in Missouri each year, and also regularly violate the law themselves.

We have used Missouri’s open records law (Sunshine Law) to obtain thousands of documents from hundreds of drug warriors in every corner of the state. They have revealed, on many occasions, that the most zealous proponents of marijuana prohibition have a very hard time following laws themselves. Our open records requests have revealed a very wide array of unscrupulous and unlawful activities, including:
