Man, I am happy it's 2020...

OH shit man it's not 2020, it's 2022! Damnit...Did I just travel in the future?

Dude...

Where am I right now...I am supposed to be looking for my car I think, but I am not sure...Did I come by foot maybe?

Alright, let's look for that Cannabis Club, "The Den", that everybody is talking about.
My first experience in a club a few days ago was quite underwhelming. I went to a place called "El Doctor" smash in the middle of Javea, and let me tell ya...Not the best.
I won't tell you more about it because I don't wanna be giving them a bad press, but it wasn't my jam at all.

The Playstation consoles and the "Fail Army" on big TVs (people falling off bikes & skateboard, because pothead love that shit you know...Not) did not help me with feeling that I was being sold overly expensive product, and the weedtender (I guess like a bartender) was French, which is...Hold on, I just told you I won't tell you about it and here I am telling you the whole thing.

Where is this place?

Let's go around one more time.

Eventually I asked a few local fellows where "The Den" was, and kids with a big spliff in their mouth literally point at the street I just came from.
They must have thought I was stupido.

Very inconspicuous

I missed the entrance of The Den, thrice, and eventually realized that it was that little door, very classy.

You ring a bell, like in a club. There is a camera, no signs of shenanigans, the door open.

The place is not super big, and the atmosphere is very cozy. A song of Morgan Heritage is blasting the speakers, a few heads turn around when I enter, then resume their occupations.

The weedtender speaks English and she isn't French, wonderful. I look at the price list and ask her if I can take a few pics, she thanks me for even asking her, I get a complimentary drink with my $10 registration. Cool!

I went for Amnesia, a classic. One thing is I normally used to mix my spliff with CBD, just to attenuate the effect, which I didn't this time around. Let's just say that the blurry picture, is a sign that at that point, there is no fuck given anymore, and I am getting high, let's go.

It was $7 per g, which is a decent freaking price. They had a large variety of choice, but I didn't wanna stay here forever (you have to stay at least 30 minutes, it's not a "pick n go" shop from what I understand).

They provide you with grinders, and RAW rolling papers, which is probably sponsoring them, smart!

I was pleasantly surprised by the chilled atmosphere and the quality of the weed!
That was a matchmade in heaven, so much that I actually went back a few days later, this is gonna be my spot!

After further analysis, and using all my scientific knowledge, I can safely say that this shit is dank.

Nice. You found your spot. Now you can rest easy. So I guess weed is legal in Spain?

That's cool. Makes life easier for you by the sounds of it. Weed became legal in Canada shortly after I left. I hear that there are shops everywhere now haha

Well I think the Netherlands is at the front but maybe Canada is a close second now 😂😂
Yeah 2 years for sure. Maybe closer to 3 at this point? I guess that's splitting hairs though haha

Hi. In Spain it is not legal to consume or plant. Smoking clubs are a separate case. I used to belong to one but in 2021 the police pressure increased, and those of us leaving the club had the police waiting for us a couple of streets over. I had to stop going. It's crazy, yes. And the seeds can only be sold as a collector's item, but it's forbidden to plant them.

And what's even crazier, is that CBD flower is illegal!

Check this out bro, it's about growing in Spain:
https://spainweedguide.com/how-many-weed-plants-can-i-grow-in-spain/

Regarding growing, I've had confirmation that you can grow 2 plants per person for personnal consumpton:

Nevertheless, the case law provides that cultivation and possession of narcotic substances that are not intended for trafficking but for one’s own consumption and certain hypotheses of shared consumption in which there is no purpose or risk of diffusion, is unpunished. Consequently, if the cultivation is not intended for the purposes discussed but only for self-consumption or shared use within an organisation, is an act of impunity.

source

Also this:

Clearly, while cannabis has been decriminalized in Spain, it is not legal. Growing marijuana in Spain will get one into trouble if one minds the rules and regulations imposed by the Spanish government. Smoking and growing cannabis on private property are not going to get anyone into trouble unless the weed plants are visible to the public.

So from locals that were growing, if your plant is hidden to the eye, they let it be.

I guess it depends where, right?

Okay I see. That's interesting. I'm sure it was pretty scary when the police were there waiting. I used to get pretty paranoid when I did it.

Man that shit is hilarious in South Africa, you can alwauys negociate haha. Anyway, just never carry more than one nug on you and you'll be fine. Avoid to smoke in the car, etc...But still, though, right here I see everyone just doing it everywhere, and the popo is super chilled.

I wonder where @happyfrog420-new was, that shit must have been pretty hectic!

I live in Alicante, 90 km from Denia 🐸. The club or association I belonged to is the oldest in Spain ALACANNABIS. The police came in last summer and arrested all the people inside. Some were only fined, others are awaiting trial. If the police want to enter, not two floors, not one, not a half and if the police stop you and you have something on you, they fine you. Now it seems that they have lowered the police pressure a little and are looking the other way and in tourist areas like Denia, even more so. They are not in the mood to spoil the vacations of many tourists :).
By the way, the buds looked very good.

Hahaha this is what I thought, it's good to hear though. I am sorry you guys had to go through this last year, I had some pressure by cops a few times, and it's never fun.

Oooh so you're from the area? I am not far from Denia, lemme know if you wanna hang out, we are here for 3 months! If you know of some places looking for (pro) live act also, let me know, I am always down to play ^^.

And it also gives me an opportunity to be away from the kids lol!

By the way, the buds looked very good.

Thanks man, supposed to be Amnesia, but you know how it is haha...

I may have to go to Altea soon. I have to be confirmed. When I know I'll let you know and we can meet there if it's good for you. It is very close to Denia and is a very nice town full of artists, especially painters. If you have not visited it I recommend it, some days of the week the artists leave the doors of their houses open and you can enter the workshops. Do you have discord?

I stopped going and have not returned. The police were waiting a couple of streets over. For them it was like hunting mice.

Looks classy indeed! Far outdoes the dispensary I went to in New York State a few days ago. Mine was in a dilapidated trailer, a few stragglers sitting under a tattered umbrella in the shade outside - it was cooler out than it was in.Product laid out on a crooked and not sparkling clean table. The weed was really good though.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Yeah that was the vibe of the first joint I was in.

There were some stains of bright red soda on the counter when I arrived I thought it was blood, and I my first thought was "Is this woman gonna clean the stain or not" and I played that game for 10 minutes in my head. 😄 The stain is probably still there.

Also someone clearly kicked the wall and left a shoe mark.

So compared to that, the second place was a blessin hahaha.

That bud looks good too, but the Takis a even nicer touch! I dig the low key vibe of the place, definitely can see why it was hard finding it at first .

Yeah bru and they not even promoting it! At first I was bitching about the price a bit, because I am used to getting more from my guys on the low, but I also understand that they have a whole ecosystem put in place here, and some really decent choice from Amsterdam.

I am thinking of visiting a new one every month 😄
