Thanks a lot for the comment. I do know the Barcelona CSC-scene very well and did not mention it on purpose. Within the last years i travelled and visited clubs all over Spain. The reason why i did not mention the Catalan, especially the Barcelona Clubs, is the extraordanriy position they have in my eyes. Durings my vistis I never had the impression the Clubs become commercialized somehow, with the exception of Barcelona. Here i even got offered memberships in the streets like in older Ramblas times. So i must agree the Barcelona Modell gives too much points for critics, because the clubs are just too big, too unpersonal und to easy to access.
But i have been to a lot of Clubs that realize the dangers of the model and set up rules concerning maximum number of members etc. A CSC model needs as well to emphazine on personal structures, the key words are social controll and prevention of problematic consumption patterns. I know that the Barcelona model also has to face the critics of smaller clubs/associatons, because a lot of those clubs work with very strict rules and never had any problems so far, they fear the “open” CSC model in Barcelona will have negative effect on their work. But nevertheless i do think a CSC Model like i experienced it in San Sebastian or Valencia is the best solution for the land of clubs and assosiations—Germany. Of course the CSC system has to get rid of it’s childhood deseases, but that should be a questions of experience and time, not a basic one.
With best wishes,

this “Grenzwertskommision” is pure hypocrisy; you get banned from driving even if you do not drive with 1 nanogram, but if you’ve been caught smoking pot on the streets by foot!
However, sufferers can find it hard to get a prescription for therapeutic cannabis. Medical practitioners are cautious of issuing prescriptions, as they’re skeptical about cannabis’s healing effects, or still think there’s a regulation connected with using it.
It’s not allowed to grow cannabis in Germany, and offenders get the same punishments as for sale or supply. Despite this, the German government has recognized the profit-making potential of producing cannabis domestically.

If you’re in a warmer area like Frankfurt on the Main or Dusseldorf in the north-east, you may have the chance to plant directly in the ground outside (assuming you’ve fertilised and dug out a bed).
There are unique advantages and disadvantages to growing in each region, whether it’s the weather patterns, sunlight, or pests in the area.
