Marijuana is illegal in Malta and is considered a hard drug. Marijuana use is very limited in Malt despite the climate which makes it a nice place to have a joint. However, the police can be very strict and during the summer concerts (which attract some very strong artists), the police mount road blocks to restrict the use of drugs and to catch any one who is trying to get some into a concert. The prison terms and fines can be harsh and the controls at the airport can be very tight, with coordination between all the forces of law and order.  (customs officers, police and the armed forces)

Penalties for marijuana trafficking includes imprisonment from 3 years or a life sentence and a fine between 2, 329.37 to 116,468.67 Euros. Penalties for possession can run from 12 months to ten years imprisonment and from a 465.87 Euro and 23,293.73 Euro in fines. As an example, During 2007, an Egyptian national was sentenced to a 12 year custodial sentence and fined 15,000 Maltese Liri (about 35,000 Euros) for possession and dealing 14 kilograms of cannabis resin (hashish).

Although there are signs that the law is relaxing a little bit at least with regards to medical marijuana. In the "coming months", Sativex spray will be made available to patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), but the Medicines Authority is also "listening to stakeholders" on a range of other forms and treatments of cannabis.

As we have said previously on several occasions growing marijuana for personal use (upto a certain amount) is legal as long as it’s not in public.

In the centre of Madrid not far from where the legendary Pacha disco used to be there is an cannabis association for marijuana users. Whilst you are heading towards this club, your thoughts could turn to the typical view of a club where junkies, persecuted by the police, can find refuge. A kind of sordid place rather like the opium dens of Victorian England, with people spaced out on coaches getting their fix. Abandoned by life they use the drug as a way to escape from a permanent hostile reality. However, nothing could be further from the truth, as marijuana and cannabis derived consumers live in the same world as the rest of us and are surviving just like the rest of us.

They are not just trying to get high at any price, in fact addiction to hemp products is much less than addiction to say tobacco or alcohol. As many studies have pointed out.

Marijuana is a psychoactive substance and its sale is considered drug trafficking., whereas self-consumption is not. But what happens if a group of users get together to form an association. Production is not legal (depending on the quantity produced). Nor is consumption in public, the only legal place to partake is in the club (association), i.e. in a private space not open to the public. Facilitating access for consumers isn’t legal or illegal it just happens.

In Cyprus, Cannabis is a Class B substance – There is a possibility of life imprisonment is possible for use and a maximum eight years for possession (at the moment a maximum two years for the first offence for under 25-year-olds). In practice, an offender is taken to a local police station by drug enforcement where a statement fingerprints and/or a confession are taken. After minor interrogation, the offender is held overnight and then released to be later called to court where a judge will set a fine between 400-1000 Euro for first time offender and depending on the amount of cannabis found and severity of the case. Factors such as being helpful to the police, full confession, completion of 6-month detox program provided by the government and an apologetic attitude towards the judge can help for a reduced fine.

The offender must attend a detox centre on their own and complete a six-month detox programme. At the end of the programme a report is sent to the judge outlining the result of the detox and the attitude of the offender, it appears that they are also issued a diploma. Non completion of this 6-month program can have  consequences such as an increased fine at sentencing. 

Cyprus legalized the medical use of cannabis oil in January 2017. Only advanced stage cancer patients are currently eligible, however.[2

It seems that smoking or even trying to get weed, is a very risky business in Cyprus, the recommendation is that unless you have a very good contact the odds are that if you go out on your own to find it you will get into trouble. There are stories of the police beating people up for just carrying king size papers and cardboard filters. So be very careful.


If you are an avid WeedSeek reader you will be well aware that Europe is changing it’s point of view towards cannabis, in many countries even faster than the USA. It seems that this summer will be a happy flower power summer, with a lot of Mediterranean countries allowing cannabis consumption.

Germany has positioned itself as Europe’s market leader by liberalizing its medical program in 2017: “While sales there are restricted to pharmacies, the country’s lawmakers have approved a fairly liberal list of qualifying conditions expected to rapidly swell the ranks of registered patients over the course of 2018 and beyond.”, as mentioned in Arcview Group‘s new study on cannabis.

Italy, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland and Poland are also named as launching similar, if less ambitious, programs. And last July, the Spanish region of Catalonia “moved past tolerance and legalized cannabis, permitting the cultivation, consumption and distribution for members of designated cannabis clubs.” Although this law is still pending it’s approval by the country’s government, Catalonia (Barcelona, Lerida, Girona & Tarragona) are acting as if the law was already passed. The Catalan government allows cultivation of up to 150kg of flower per club per year, this should be enough to cater for all the clubs members. Plus it guarantees crop control, all crops must be controlled and certified by a local agronomist.


On 10th December 2013, Uruguay became the first country (in modern times), to regulate the cannabis market.

The Institute of Regulation and Control of Cannabis (IRCCA), which is under the control of the Ministry of Public Health was created to issue licenses and to control and regulate importation, production, marketing, storage and distribution of marijuana and its derivatives. Uruguayan citizens and residents (over 18 years old) can buy up to 10 grams per week from authorised chemists with a maximum holding of 40 grams. Clubs can grow up to 6 plants with a maximum yield of 480 grams per year, the clubs are permitted to have a membership of between 15 and 45 members. It can also be cultivated for scientific and medical use. Driving under the influence is prohibited. 

How does that help a tourist- well strangely enough tourists cannot buy marijuana however, there is a catch. While tourists aren’t allowed to buy marijuana, they are allowed to receive it as a gift. If you make friends who are excited to share their stash with you, you’re good. And if you just happen to pay for a cannabis-themed tour and receive a gift at the end of your tour, then you haven’t broken any laws. 

Legal Status of Cannabis in Barcelona

As we have mentioned in Spain Cannabis is only legal inside private “Cannabis Social Clubs” (also known as “Social Cannabis Associations”), and Barcelona, although the regional government has tried to legislate, is no different. There are around 120 cannabis clubs in Barcelona, as you can imagine in all shapes & sizes, from the posh, to the down to earth more hippy clubs. However, you must remember that you cannot simply walk into a marijuana club and become a member and buy the product immediately.

Despite the legal private clubs, marijuana is not tolerated the way it is in the Netherlands. While Spanish law is considered very liberal in private spaces, don’t expect to consume marijuana outside your house or the club without consequence, usually just a fine & a unpleasant memory. If you are caught with marijuana in public, your product will most likely be confiscated and you could be left with a hefty fine, anywhere from 300 to 600 euros.

If you are in Guadalajara and “fancy a smoke”, you have landed on the right page! We are talking about Guadalajara Spain, not Mexico!

In its distant origins, Guadalajara was linked to Celtoberian culture, though the earliest  historical references tell of its strategic military importance to the emirs and caliphs of Córdoba. It was then known as Madinat al-Faray in memory of its conqueror, and Wad al-Hayara, Arab translation of its pre-Roman name, Arriaca. 

In 1085, Guadalajara became part of the Kingdom of Castille as a result of the expansionist policy of King Alphonse VI. In later years, this was to be celebrated as a military triumph of Alvar Fáñez de Minaya, as reflected in the coat of arms of the city.

Despite the loss of its status of medina, Guadalajara received numerous royal privileges. Among those were Fueros (charters, rights, privileges) granted by Alphonse VII in 1133 and again by Fernando III in 1219; the right to vote in the Cortes (the Councils of the Kings) granted by Alphonse IX; and the right to organize markets, granted by Alphonse X. Finally, its status as a City was restored by Henry IV of Castille in 1460. 

As you can see Guadalajara has a lot of history, and as one can imagine, it’s not easy to find Marijuana in Guadalajara unless you use this guide.
