Five people who are part of a cannabis association in Nou Barris, Barcelona have been arrested for possessing 228 marijuana plants and over seven kilos of cut marijuana, as well as various tools for its cultivation. The cannabis they sold in their 'cannabis club' was being grown on a private property. According to officials, much of the cannabis was being consumed outside the club, thus contravening the regulations established by the Ajuntament.
The arrests mark another development in an area which critics say is filled with grey areas and unclear legislation.
