Fines and Sentences for growing cannabis in the UK

We just thought it might be interesting to have a blog to share experiences with the Law regarding cannabis.

Approximately 2 million people smoke cannabis in the UK on a regular basis and over 50% of 16-29 year olds have tried it at least once. We would rather the law was on our side with this issue but unfortunately it is not. Our opinion is that it should be a matter of one's own judgement rather than criminal charges.
Please share your experience with getting caught growing or using cannabis. It doesn't matter how big or how small the crime was as this will help people worried about the law.

What are the current sentences in Spain for cannabis cultivation?

We all know how things are changing across the world with relaxed cannabis laws. The question is what exactly is happening in Spain??

Recently we went over to Spain to visit friends and next to them is a grow shop called 'Dutch Garden' in Javea. In this shop the guy sells cuttings, lights, seeds and everything possible for growing. He went on to explain a little of how things work over there at the moment and it is completely legal to grow your own.  You can grow up to 4 plants for personal consumption. It is also completely legal to smoke in the privacy of your own home. It is however illegal to smoke in public and if caught punishable by heavy fines.

What we want to know is what exactly are the sentences for people who get caught growing on a bigger scale in Spain? Are there loop holes people can get around the law using? can you grow marijuana commercially for a business venture legally?

If you have any experience with the Spanish legal system and cannabis cultivation please share your experience here as I think everyone would appreciate the information. 


  1. Well im from spain currently livin in uk. If u get caught by possesion, probably u will get a warning if its ur first time. If its ur second, or the policeman are upset, u will get a fine (not too expensive). If u got caught by 3rd time, u will be destined to reahinilation procedure and a biggest fine. I have no idea bout growin pot, but as the article said, u can grow up 4 plants a tear per person for self consume. And if i dont mistake, the plants cant go over 28 grams each. Otherwise it becomes illegal.

  2. I'd like to know how many people are actually in prison in Spain for cannabis growing, my guess is not many at all.

  3. possessing utensils to commit drugs offences, possessing herbal cannabis with intent to supply, buy weed seeds
