Vuelta Dope Bust!!

This needs Onion style continuation: The owners realized there was a frickin' copter hanging above their field, so they quickly burned it, inadvertently attacking the peloton with a ganja smoke cloud. Tomorrow headlines: After descending from the mountains Vuelta peloton reaches new highs.
 
“We received information via social media that there was a marijuana plantation on the roof of a block of flats in Igualada,” said a spokeswoman for the force. (via The Guardian)
So impressed with the civic-mindedness of the member of the public who tweeted/DM'd the Mossos d’Esquadra to narc on his/her compatriots!! :rolleyes:

Well… if it is illegal...
A more nefarious explanation could be that whoever told the police has their own hash plants and either:
A: Didn't want competition on the (black) market.
2: Simply wanted to draw attention away from themselves.

Living in the Great Pacific NW we are always amazed when pot is still illegal.....especially in a place like Spain.

Pot is illegal in Spain but it is not prosecuted if all you have is a small amount that can be reasonably considered for your own personal consumption. A rooftop with dozens of plants is something else.
 
You've never been to Ballard or Portland. That is a personal consumption amount.
We can't even get medical here in the UK despite being the worlds largest exporter of said product and indeed ex PM May's husband's investment company has a big investment in it and a recent drug zcar minister's husband was the CIO of the company growing the stuff. You couldn't make it up. Reefer madness is the rigour ....
 
I'm still amazed at how quickly we're seeing legalization in the U.S. I honestly never thought we'd have same-sex marriage and weed become legal so quickly, not in a "Christian" nation.

It's just too bad in live in NC, where I can't even buy liquor on Sundays or after 21:00.

But you can marry young and get cigarettes anytime you want!

I hear you on that one, sort of.

I live in Oregon, and while we had passed the legalization of marijuana law a while back it still strikes me as odd when I see some local pot shop advertising their various strains and flavors of foliage.

You must take into account that I worked in a head shop in Seattle a couple (or three) of decades back where a spliff was still illegal .... technically it was mostly a t-shirt shop. But behind the sacred walls that weren't for the cops to see in plain sight were the most excellent selection of bongs and "water pipes"! Heh.

Back on topic - carrying an ounce of weed for your own (or sharing) consumption I think is okay. But once you start mass growing it we get into the grower&dealer/taxation of grower&dealer part of things. So that is where things get a bit dicey where Mary Jay is being grown legally.

The major attraction is the tax revenue. That, and getting as much of the organized crime as possible out of the revenue stream.
