Cannabis Culture

The changing club situation in Spain

The situation in Spain is a special case. After the Spanish peninsula was characterised as “the Netherlands of the South”, the number of social cannabis clubs sky-rocketed. In some cases, however, it is difficult to identify the altruists amidst all the uproar. As ever, a handful of opponents who are trying to increase their numbers in order to uphold the bad reputation of the opposition are having to confront the countless fighters for the cause. The clubs are now working hard to seize a place in a society that is gradually beginning to accept the legalisation of cannabis.

Barcelona to curb cannabis clubs

Barcelona wants to set limits on the "proliferation" of cannabis clubs, places where members purchase and consume marijuana. Although there are no official figures, municipal authorities have counted around 200 such premises, most of which are located in the city center. Just two years ago, there were only 40 cannabis clubs in the entire Catalan region.

Now, officials plan to look a little deeper into these associations: first, to see whether they were legally set up; second, to check what their stated goals are. Preliminary investigations suggest that in most cases, the clubs claim to make a therapeutic use of the drug. If this is not the case, the city will temporarily seal them off.

The Counterculture Hall of Fame – List of Inductees

Steven Hager became Editor in Chief of High Times magazine in 1987. Back then he created the first hemp legislation group, the High Times Freedom Fighters, and created the World Hemp Expo Extravaganja as well as the Cannabis Cup.

The Counterculture Hall of Fame was set up “to celebrate the history of the counterculture by recognizing its saints”, as Mr Hager says. Every year around the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, the prestigious award is given to a person that has made history by founding, living and/or leading a counterculture.

Ben Dronkers - still breaking the "rules" at the High Times Cannabis Cup 2013

In an unprecedented turn of events, Sensi Seeds founder Ben Dronkers was interrupted by High Times security during his seminar at the Cannabis Cup expo today, as he threw small bags of cannabis into the audience. By this time, Ben realised what was occurring and addressed the crowd and the man -- "there's no law against sharing cannabis!"
