Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Spain.

  Info on Spain and Medical Cannabis 

Spain has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) Program (LAW).

Spain - status Spain | In October 2005, the autonomous government in the region of Catalonia launched a program of therapeutical use of Sativex for 600 patients of a wide set of illnesses, from multiple sclerosis to cancer, in order to avoid nauseas or to relax tense muscles. The project involves six hospitals, forty researchers and sixty drugstores. The product is presented as an atomizer to be taken orally, and it will be delivered at drugstores inside some hospitals. The full text of the research initiative can be seen here, in Catalan, from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. ... Click > here < for more.

Spain - Resource, Org; local Medical cannabis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | While utilizing cannabis for recreational purposes is illegal in many parts of the world, many countries are beginning to entertain varying levels of decriminalization for medical usage, including Canada, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Spain, Israel, Italy, Finland, and Portugal. ... Spain | In Spain, since the late 1990s and early 2000s, medical cannabis underwent a process of progressive decriminalization and legalisation. The parliament of the region of Catalonia is the first in Spain have voted unanimously in 2001 legalizing medical marijuana, it is quickly followed by parliaments of Aragon and the Balearic Islands.[citation needed] The Spanish Penal Code prohibits the sale of cannabis but it does not prohibit consumption (although consumption on the street is fined). Until early 2000, the Penal Code did not distinguish between therapeutic use of cannabis and recreational use, however, several court decisions show that this distinction is increasingly taken into account by the judges. From 2006, the sale of seed is legalized,[citation needed] the sale and public consumption remains illegal, and private cultivation and use are permitted.

Several studies have been conducted to study the effects of cannabis on patients suffering from diseases like cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, seizures or asthma. This research was conducted by various Spanish agencies at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid headed by Manuel Guzman, the hospital of La Laguna in Tenerife led neurosurgeon Luis González Feria or the University of Barcelona.[citation needed] Several cannabis consumption clubs and user associations have been established throughout Spain. These clubs, the first of which was created in 1991, are non-profit associations who grow cannabis and sell it at cost to its members. The legal status of these clubs is uncertain: in 1997, four members of the first club, the Barcelona Ramón Santos Association of Cannabis Studies, were sentenced to 4 months in prison and a 3000 euro fine, while at about the same time, the court of Bilbao ruled that another club was not in violation of the law. The Andalusian regional government also commissioned a study by criminal law professors on the "Therapeutic use of cannabis and the creation of establishments of acquisition and consumption. The study concluded that such clubs are legal as long as they distribute only to a restricted list of legal adults, provide only the amount of drugs necessary for immediate consumption, and not earn a profit. The Andalusian government never formally accepted these guidelines and the legal situation of the clubs remains insecure. In 2006 and 2007, members of these clubs were acquitted in trial for possession and sale of cannabis and the police were ordered to return seized crops. ...

International Travel Laws for Spain ... Spain, like many European countries, has liberal laws on marijuana use, compared to many other nations such as the U.S. Spanish laws focus on restricting sale and transport of the drug. Individual possession and use in private are legal. Spain generally treats drug abuse as a health issue rather than a legal issue. Drug abusers are more likely to face court-appointed treatment programs than incarceration. Sale and Transport | Selling marijuana is illegal in Spain. In addition, Spain has severe penalties for trafficking in the drug, including fines and three to six years in prison. While personal possession is legal for residents, the burden is on the individual to prove the drug is for personal use and not for profit. Foreign visitors to Spain with an eye to marijuana use should remember that it is illegal to purchase the drug. If caught possessing marijuana, they risk being prosecuted on trafficking charges as well. ...

Legality Medical marijuana is currently legal or decriminalized in the Czech Republic, Finland, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Possession of (small amounts of) marijuana is generally tolerated or not penalized in Belgium, Croatia, Estonia, Italy, and Switzerland.

International law

Marijuana is in Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following, in reference to Schedule IV drugs:

    A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of, trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct supervision and control of the Party.

This provision, while apparently providing for the limitation of marijuana to research purposes only, also seems to allow some latitude for nations to make their own judgments. The official Commentary on the Single Convention indicates that Parties are expected to make that judgment in good faith.

Spain - Resource, Business; International (US) Exploring the Cannabis Clubs of Southern Spain, Europe's New Weed Destination | Over the last five years, Spain has come to rival the Netherlands as Europe's cannabis hub. The country's legal framework around weed, which allows its use and sale within private members clubs, has been fully taken advantage of in the north of the country, particularly in the Catalonia region, where clubs reportedly make an estimated $6 million in sales each month. These private spliff societies—which, unlike Amsterdam's coffee shops, only allow entry to members, rather than any old sweat-suited stoner straight off an EasyJet flight—have risen in number from around 40 in 2010 to over 700 today, according to smokers' groups. And just as America's "cannabis revolution" was initially centered around California and Colorado before spreading boisterously throughout a number of other states, southern Spain is now also enjoying its very own network of private members cannabis clubs. * Click >> HERE <<

Spain - Resource, Business; International (US) Weed Games » Blog » It’s 4:20! » Marijuana Directory Marijuana Quiz Marijuana Addiction Survey About Us » 10 Things You Need to Know about Barcelona Cannabis Clubs | I get a lot of questions from readers about Barcelona’s cannabis clubs. Questions range from “How Can I get Membership at a Cannabis Club in Barcelona?” to “Is Weed Legal in Spain?” to questions about the club’s use of personal information and many others. Of course, there’s also no shortage of questions about the actual marijuana on offer in Barcelona. Because many of these questions follow a common theme, I thought this short but direct list of the 10 most important things you need to know about Barcelona’s cannabis clubs might help shed some light on what is – by necessity – a private industry. 1.) Cannabis Clubs in Barcelona are private, not public Don’t confuse a cannabis club in Barcelona for a coffeeshop in Amsterdam; they’re not at all the same thing. Amsterdam’s coffeeshops are public and are open to anyone at any time. Barcelona’s cannabis clubs, on the other hand, are only open to new members via referrals through existing members. 2.) You Don’t “Buy” Weed from Barcelona’s Cannabis Clubs When you become a member of a cannabis club in Barcelona, you are essentially part of a coalition that grows and distributes marijuana among its members. Therefore, the marijuana that’s grown belongs to all members, including you. You are required to pay for your share of what it costs to grow the marijuana and pay for the building space and other facilities, utilities, etc. These costs are recouped in a number of ways, and members generally share the cost. This means that you’re not buying weed when you go to a smoking club. You’re simply acquiring your share of what you and other members have grown. Therefore, it is considered rude to talk about “buying weed,” and if you do so while at a club you might be corrected. 9.) Cannabis Clubs in Spain Cannot Advertise Publicly Because Spain’s cannabis clubs are private, members-only organizations, they cannot publicly advertise. This may be why so few people are aware of what’s really going on in Barcelona, how prevalent the cannabis clubs are, and that membership is available even to foreigners.  In fact, as of a recent ruling in Catalonia’s parliament in early 2015, there are no residency requirements to join a cannabis club. * Click >> HERE <<

    Spain - local Contacts and Resources: Barcelona Barcelona | Smoking Tolerance Level[1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5 --- Barcelona Marijuana Laws & Legislation: Spain’s constitution gives considerable protection to what people do in the privacy of their homes. “The Spanish law says that personal behavior in a private place, and this includes private land and outbuildings, is protected by the constitution,” “The controversial issues are that police are allowed to determine if what you are doing is personal or if it is meant for distribution, which is illegal, and they are also allowed to arrest you if your cannabis activities or possession are outside of your private domain.” Law Enforcement in Barcelona: The cops in Barca are a joke… Drug use and possession for personal use do not constitute a criminal offense under Spanish law. However, public consumption can be penalized with administrative fines. Public possession of less than two ounces of cannabis is not a criminal offense, although heavy administrative fines can be levied. Possession of more than two ounces, growing for sale, or selling are considered criminal offenses, but prison terms are not as severe as those levied in the US. Where to Buy Marijuana in Barcelona: There are plenty of “coffee shops” all over the place. Albeit they are all “social clubs” with membership required. You can take a tour and become a member instantly. if you go stand outside one, don’t look totally sketchy, and ask nicely, a member will get you some very good quality bud. Do -not- get the brick hash the Pakistanis are selling in the south of el Gotic, it is crap and insanely over-priced. Should you attempt to get weed from the black guys in the same area, make sure you look at the quality and assure that it’s good -before handing them any money, if they refuse, tell them to fuck off and stop wasting your time. Then ask one of the other guys in the vicinity, they are often competitors, and not friends.

    Spain - local Contacts and Resources: Granada Granada | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5 --- Legislation: Cannabis is illegal in Spain but it is not a major concern if the police catches you with some pot as they will most likely just confiscate the gear and then leave. Law Enforcement: Spain is a lot more worried about hard drugs (which are also easy to come by here) Where to buy marijuana: The street Calle Elvira, is the pot capital of Granada. Avoid getting hit by stoned drivers in this narrow street, but just wait a few moments and someone will offer you some. Also, the Plaza Nueva region is home to some wonderfully friendly English speaking homeless hippies who have loads of it. Finally, along Gran Via, in front of CajaGranada lives a guitar playing hippie who has some. Marijuana Prices: As long as you look like you know what you are doing, you can get it for 6-8 euros a gram. Otherwise, you may end up paying 12 euros or more. *  >> Learn more >>

    Spain - local Contacts and Resources: Madrid Madrid | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5 --- Legislation: Spain’s constitution gives considerable protection to what people do in the privacy of their homes.” “The Spanish law says that personal behavior in a private place, and this includes private land and outbuildings, is protected by the constitution,” “The controversial issues are that police are allowed to determine if what you are doing is personal or if it is meant for distribution, which is illegal, and they are also allowed to arrest you if your cannabis activities or possession are outside of your private domain.” ARSEC – the country’s premier marijuana legalization organization Law Enforcement: Madrid police do not have a single coordination set-up to attend foreign visitors either as victims or as detainees. The city police (“Guardia Urbana”) say they will, in such cases, contact the respective embassies. The “Policia Nacional”, charged with public order, have the habit of bringing all foreigners they pick up, to their “comisaría” on Madrazos street in the city centre. Where to Buy Marijuana in Madrid: Here is the latest info: “just outside of the metro stop in Retrio Park. Make eye contact with any black dudes posted up, they are friendly and speak more English than most of the local, he’ll tell you to go sit on the park bench and from there you can haggle. The dudeman i dealt with was there every day 1 to 2. ” another recent report is: ” I went to Parque del Retiro, entering by Calle de Alcala. After being in the park for about ten seconds I made eye contact with a guy who was standing with two others. He and I walked down the path…I asked him for twenty, and he said forty. I said twenty, and again he said forty. I said no, twenty. Then he said thirty and I said okay.

    Spain - local Contacts and Resources: Seville Seville | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5 --- Legislation: it is legal to grow in your home. because Spanish drug laws are limited to public space, you only have to worry about the law if you’re toking up on a street, museum or in a park. If you do get caught, possession of up to 50 grams of cannabis is considered for personal use and there are no criminal penalties. If you have large stashes and they must be quite large divvied up into smaller portions you will probably be tagged a dealer and hit with an “attempt against public health” charge, which can carry a prison sentence. Law Enforcement: Not in Seville. I barely ever saw cops when I lived in Sevilla. I had no problem walking down a side street and taking a couple puffs on a pipe or porro(joint). Many Spaniards do it themselves. Where to buy marijuana: The best thing to do when you want to buy is to ask around at bars and clubs. Look for people smoking themselves or people you think smoke. You will generally pay more, the quality is poor, and you get less. But, you can also get lucky and meet someone who grows their own pot. WeBeHigh City Tale: You can sit in a couple of parks at Placa Encarnacion or near Placa de Espana and smoke there, no one ever approached us. Take enough to drink with you, so the heat will not kill you. Smoke your day away in the sun in Seville, Spain, where locals and the law are so accepting of bud and hash that it is legal to grow in your home. Keep in mind Spain is the European country closest to Morocco and boasts more than 1500 years of cannabis and hash smoking history. Swing by the Barrio de Santa Cruz for a taste of the local life. The atmosphere at Casa Roman bar, located in Plaza de los Venerables, lies in the ranks of cured hams hung from the ceiling, while the Plaza Dona Elvira is a good area to try and score from the young guitar-playing locals. *  >> Learn more >>

Spain - Resource, Org; local ASA : Medical Cannabis Policy Update: SPAIN: Autonomous Regions Can Allow Doctors to Prescribe Cannabis | The parliament of Spain's Baleares region voted in April by a large majority to allow doctors on Mallorca to prescribe cannabis for therapeutic purposes. The decision comes after responsibility for the health system was passed on to the regional government by the central government. The vote means that 60 pharmacies and four hospitals in Catalonia will start prescribing cannabis to patients for whom other treatments have failed. Doctors in Catalonia will be able to prescribe cannabis in capsules or as an infusion for four specific groups of patients: those suffering from AIDS, cancer, chronic pain, or multiple sclerosis. The new policy affects roughly 150,000 patients.

Spain's Health Minister, who must approve such decisions, said she accepted that cannabis "has some therapeutic value" and approves of "the controlled use of tablets in specific cases and under medical supervision." The pilot project, which will operate for a year, was proposed by Barcelona's College of Pharmacists, following a similar program in the Netherlands with 8,000 patients. ...

Positive effects are claimed for ailments such as cancer, AIDS, and glaucoma. AIDS can cause a loss of appetite known as "wasting syndrome", which can lead to drastic weight loss and weakness. Chemotherapy used in the treatment of cancer causes nausea resulting in an inability to keep down food. Marijuana's healing nature for these two illnesses is a result of its ability to increase a person's appetite as well as relieving nausea, allowing a patient to regain weight. Marijuana reportedly helps glaucoma patients by reducing intraocular pressure that can cause damage to the eye. ...

Cannabis was a part of the American pharmacopoeia until 1942 and is currently available by prescription in the Netherlands, Canada, Spain, and Italy in its whole plant form. In 1937, the U.S. passed the first federal law against cannabis, despite the objections of the American Medical Association (AMA). Dr. William C. Woodward, testifying on behalf of the AMA, told Congress that, "The American Medical Association knows of no evidence that marijuana is a dangerous drug" and warned that a prohibition "loses sight of the fact that future investigation may show that there are substantial medical uses for Cannabis." Ironically, the U.S. federal government currently grows and provides cannabis for a small number of patients. In 1976 the federal government created the Investigational New Drug (IND) compassionate access research program to allow patients to receive up to nine pounds of cannabis from the government each year. Today, five surviving patients still receive medical cannabis from the federal government, paid for by federal tax dollars. ... Visit: http://www.safeaccessnow.org/section.php?id=175

Senate approves medical marijuana bill - Monday, December 15, 2008 | TRENTON BUREAU: A Senate committee today cleared a measure that would allow medical use of marijuana in New Jersey. The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee voted to approve the long-stalled bill by a 6 to 1 margin; two senators abstained. The bill calls for creating “alternative treatment centers” where people with chronic and terminal diseases would be allowed access to marijuana. Supporters say marijuana is a viable treatment option to alleviate pain in many cases.

“It is the definition of basic human decency that we do whatever we can to ease the pain and suffering of people living with severe chronic and terminal diseases,” said bill sponsor Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Union. “When all other avenues of currently-approved pain relief have been exhausted, we need to give doctors the freedom to prescribe medical marijuana to give their patients a measure of comfort and dignity in the face of their debilitating diseases. This bill is about the most humane, compassionate option for those state residents who have nowhere else to turn in managing their illnesses.”

If ultimately approved by the full Legislature and signed by Governor Corzine, New Jersey would be the 14th state to allow medical use of marijuana.   ...   Visit - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=106356.

The study, which was conducted over a two year period and included 775 patients from the USA, Africa, and Puerto Rico, assessed the use of cannabis as a symptom management approach for anxiety, depression, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, and peripheral neuropathy.  27% of survey participants reported using cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Researchers wrote that cannabis use “was rated slightly more effective than antidepressants for anxiety and depression, Imodium for diarrhea, [over the counter] (OTC) medications for fatigue, and anti-epileptics and OTC medications for neuropathy” while cannabis was rated “slightly less effective for nausea than either prescribed or OTC medications.”   Authors concluded that cannabis “is perceived by users as at least as effective as prescribed medications in symptom management.”   ...   Visit - http://safeaccessnow.org/blog/?cat=22.

Spain - Resource, News; local Spain moves to allow Medical Marijuana for treating Multiple conditions - 3 Oct 2008 | The Spanish Health Ministry is expected to give its blessing to a Catalonian plan to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana to patients in need. The London Independent on Sunday reported on Feb. 6, 2005 ( "Spain's Health Ministry To Allow Doctors To Prescribe Cannabis") that "In a bold venture that puts Spain at the forefront of the medical use of cannabis in Europe, 60 pharmacies and four hospitals in Catalonia are to prescribe marijuana for therapeutic use where other treatments have failed. The pioneering scheme surpasses measures taken by the Dutch, leaders in the field, and puts British efforts in the shade. A British drug company has been denied permission to produce medicinal cannabis for trials - because of lack of political will, critics say. Doctors in Catalonia will be able to prescribe cannabis in capsules or as an infusion to help four specific conditions: anorexia among Aids patients; nausea caused by chemotherapy in cancer patients; constant pain - including migraine - that has been unresponsive to other treatments; and muscular problems among those with multiple sclerosis. About 150,000 patients are expected to benefit. Spain's Health Minister, Elena Salgado, said she accepted that cannabis 'has some therapeutic value'. She approved 'the controlled use of tablets in specific cases and under medical supervision', but insisted on the need to fight drug addiction. Spanish health policy is devolved to the regions, but must receive Madrid's blessing." >> Visit: http://www.nowpublic.com/health/spain-moves-allow-medical-marijuana-treating-multiple-conditions

Spain is moving jerkily toward acceptance of medical marijuana, with Catalan ... | Europe: Spanish Medical Marijuana Group Goes Public with "Therapeutic Cannabis Bank" - from Drug War Chronicle, Issue #459, 10/27/06 | A Spanish medical marijuana activist group, the Amigos de María, has announced the creation of the first publicly known medical marijuana dispensary in the country. Operating through the Internet, the "Cannabis Pharmacy" will provide information about medical marijuana, encourage patients to grow their own, and put patients in contact with listed growers who are prepared to donate part of their crops for patients. While the Cannabis Pharmacy is the first public dispensary, it is not the first Spanish dispensary. As the group noted, "We are aware that other groups have been doing this for several years in a more or less clandestine form. The only new thing is that we have gone public in the hope that our politicians take note of the matter and normalize, once and for all, the use of cannabis, and until that time arrives, we can reduce the risks of the therapeutic use of cannabis." Spain is moving jerkily toward acceptance of medical marijuana, with Catalan authorities having authorized a pilot program for marijuana in pharmacies last year. Earlier this year, authorities in Barcelona announced plans for a trial of the marijuana-based sublingual spray Sativex that will involve up to 600 patients and 60 participating pharmacies. >> Visit: http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/459/first_spain_medical_marijuana_dispensary_opens

Spain - Resource, News; local NORML > News Archive > 2005 > Spain Grants Limited Access To Medical Cannabis Spray Spain Grants Limited Access To Medical Cannabis Spray - November 9, 2005 | Barcelona, Spain: Spanish health officials have approved the importation and use of Sativex, an oral spray consisting of natural cannabis extracts, for select patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis (MS), neuropathic pain, and other conditions. Produced by the British biotechnology firm GW Pharmaceuticals and marketed by Bayer, Sativex is a whole plant medicinal cannabis extract containing precise doses of the cannabinoids THC and cannabidiol (CBD), as well as naturally existing terpenoids (oils) and flavonoids (antioxidants). In clinical trials, Sativex has been demonstrated to alleviate numerous MS-associated symptoms compared to placebo, including pain, muscle spasms, and bladder incontinence. The drug is available by prescription in Canada and is pending regulatory approval in the United Kingdom. Six hundred patients, including those suffering from MS, chronic pain, cancer, and the AIDS wasting syndrome, will be provided Sativex under the Spanish Ministry of Health's compassionate access program. The government's limited approval of the drug marks the first time Europeans will have legal access to Sativex outside of a clinical trial. >> Visit: http://norml.org/index.cfm?Group_ID=6724

Russia - Resources US Government Says It Will Stop Interfering with Medical Marijuana | According to this article, US Attorney General Eric Holder has said that states will be allowed to make their own rules about medical marijuana, and that the US federal government will stop raiding medical marijuana dispensaries in California. (See article “Can Marijuana Help Rescue California’s Economy?”at this link) In the 1990s, several US states passed referendums which allowed marijuana to be used legally for medical purposes. In a referendum, the registered voters vote directly on the proposed law, as opposed to the law being passed by the state legislature. Thus, when these states passed these referendums, it meant that the citizens of these states really wanted medical marijuana to be made legal.

However, in a blatant disregard for democracy and the people’s will, under the Bush administration, the national government refused to accept this law, and carried out raids of the medical marijuana dispensaries.   ...   Click > here < for more.

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.

" Cannabis Science Developing Various Cannabis Strains for Future Drug Development July 31, 2014/in News, Treatments /by Nicole Watkins Today, US-based Cannabis Science, Inc. announced that it has started production of several strains of cannabis and European Union certified hemp varieties to start scientific research to pick the best strains for development of proprietary formulations for clinical drug development. Cannabis Science, a company specializing in cannabis formulation-based drug development and related consulting, said that it has started producing the various strains of cannabis and hemp varieties to conduct research to select those that are best for drug development, in order to bring cannabis formulations to the market for patients with critical illnesses, such as cancer and neurological disorders. “Cannabis Science intends to leverage its team’s expertise to create a framework for research and clinical testing. We are excited to report further development and progress as we proceed forward,” said Mr. Mario S. Lap, Director and President of European Operations. The facilities are located in the Alicante region of Spain. According to Cannabis Science, it is working with a local partner to initiate an agricultural program to prepare GMP production and to start building the research framework in order to conduct scientific testing of extracts and the active components contained in the cannabis plant with the objective of developing selected formulations for clinical use. According to the company, its immediate focus is to treat cancer, which Cannabis Science considers to be one of the most important diseases in the world. In 2013, the company submitted patent application N2010968 in Europe entitled “Composition for the Treatment of Neurobehavioral Disorders.” The patent is for development of cannabinoid- based formulations to treat several neurobehavioral disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and anxiety. The first formulation in the series of products targeting neurobehavioral disorders is the pre-clinical development and use of the invention in food products through a licensing agreement with partner company OmniCanna Health Solutions. - http://www.cannabispharmacyjournal.com/2014/07/31/cannabis-science-developing-various-cannabis-strains-for-future-drug-development/ "

" Spain court rules against town's pot-growing plans - by HAROLD HECKLE | Associated Press – Fri, May 31, 2013 - MADRID (AP) — Spain's judiciary on Friday rejected a plan by a small town in northeastern Catalonia to ease its municipal debt and help lift itself out of the financial crisis by growing marijuana. When the seven-member town council of Rasquera — population 960 — voted in favor of cultivating cannabis just over a year ago in order to create jobs and shore up its finances, the news flashed around the world.

In April 2012, 56 percent of Rasquera's inhabitants gave support in a referendum to the plan to rent land to the Barcelona-based pot-smoking group ABCDA which agreed to pay $750,000 per year for two years. The payment would have been roughly equal to the debt owed by the picturesque town nestled at the foot of a mountain range with a castle dating back to the 12th century.

Now such plans have been dashed by a court ruling, accepting a central government appeal against the council's decision. Visit - http://news.yahoo.com/spain-court-rules-against-towns-pot-growing-plans-160910966.html "
