TheGrow shops Shops cannabis or are in the process of expansion.

According to the newspaper Ideal.es published only in the province of Granada and there are more than 30 such establishments where the flagship best-selling cannabis seeds are hundreds of variants.

What is a Cannabis Social Club?
Cannabis social clubs are associations that supply and distribute cannabis among its members, all older and in a private setting, reducing the risks associated with the black market or the indiscriminate cultivation.
These associations nonprofit arise in countries that have decriminalized marijuana, as is the case of Spain, to meet the needs of smokers who, although they have the right to consume, have no right to cultivate or those rights are Restricted.
Here are various aspects needed to create a cannabis club in Spain and get away try:
1) Creation and registration
The first step is to hold the Constituent Assembly in which at least three founders as a board partners are needed: a president, a secretary and a treasurer. Statutes previously written, must be approved and the founding Act which will be signed and ratified by all members. Here the corporate name is also specified. Most cannabis clubs in Spain are Pioneer club statutes Pannagh.Once held this assembly, these documents are presented in the registration of your autonomous community to formalize the partnership. It is recommended to join the Federation of cannabis (FAC) to legitimize the operation thereof, and contribute to the development of associations nationwide.
2) Registration of partners and consumption forecast
To join, fill partners an application for registration where you pay a fee and provide the ID to prove they are not minors. They also recognize the habitual use of cannabis, will belong to the association and have no criminal record relating to offenses against public health. The most important part of this inscription is the statement consumption forecast.It stipulates partner about the amount of marijuana that will consume per month. The sum of consumption forecasts partners legitimizes the partnership to supply marijuana to its members.
Ideally, not to participate in the black market, the association autoproduzca cannabis consumed by its partners. In this case production is adjusted to the sum of consumption forecasts. However, many associations do not have the means to self-produce their marijuana so they resort to joint purchase. Here, in the name of the partners, the Board acquires cannabis from a third party.
The joint purchase is, as production, the sum of consumption forecasts. The maximum forecast consumption is limited to 60 grams per month per member. Whether marijuana comes from self-supply and the black market, it shall notify the producer prices partners or acquisition with maximum transparency. Also, the final price of the product must be properly justified and broken down.
The association will not spread of cannabis and promoting it to people outside it. In addition, it should ensure a democratic organization in which, although powers to streamline decision-making are delegated, mechanisms for partners to participate in them are also guaranteed. As often happens in all associations, some partners are more involved than others, but you should always inform all assemblies and changes.
As the association grows to be assigned jobs to people who are in charge of the functions necessary for the operation of the club, such as production, administration, accounting, management … Members who perform work in the association must have a contract stipulated salary, etc. As elsewhere.
This is one of the most common malpractices in associations are beginning not regulate the work and the consequent remuneration of employees partners. Beware these labor and regulatory issues, as they can ruin all the previous work that has been necessary to set up a cannabis social club.

It was not until the demonization of the drug in the 1930s and 40 (used to suppress minority) that the word marijuana was associated with «burn the legs to the devil.» Over the years, hundreds of nicknames were coined, including grass, kush, wed, cuete, speck, etc.
