Cannabis laws in Spain
We have good news! Spain is very chill when it comes to marijuana and it is actually partially legal. Due to the way the constitution is written, cannabis is actually legal in private spaces. In effect, that means that you are allowed to smoke weed and even grow it in your own house. As soon as you go out, however, or if your plants are on the balcony, it becomes illegal. While possession and consumption of weed are illegal in public, it is also decriminalized, meaning that you will only get a fine. Unless you carry large quantities, if you carry more than a few grams with you, that can get you into a lot of trouble.
A lot of people smoke weed around the beach or the parks in Spain and generally, you will not get into a lot of trouble. A fine is the most that can happen, but even that is unlikely and a lot of people get away with just a warning. Just don’t go smoking in a policeman’s face and it should be fine.
