Cannabis Legalization Proposed For Spain: {Translation, summary}
-This Monday in the Congress of Deputies a bill was presented that, in line with the demands of the European Cannabis Observatory, declares “free” all uses of cannabis recognizing “the universal, cultural, sociological, recreational, medicinal, commercial and industrial value and character of the plant in all its varieties”. The law thus aims to put cannabis consumption on a par with tobacco consumption, with all its limitations in closed establishments and access to minors. Its consumption will thus be prohibited for those persons under age of 18.
-The text, to which elDiario.es has had access, “covers the strictly private uses of the plant and its derivatives, carried out by natural or legal persons, including the planting, possession, transport, deposit, storage, consumption, shared consumption, research or development” of marijuana and its derivatives.
-The bill contemplates, for example, the decriminalization of its consumption in public -now punished with a fine of between 600 and 10,000 euros- or that “persons who make a particular use of cannabis” may “transport on public roads up to 10 times the amount required for daily consumption”.

SCAM ALERT- National Police warn consumers of the Mercadona email scam: The scam operates via an email that you might receive, with the heading, “You have been selected!”, in which the scammer will ask you to enter personal information in order to claim a ‘prize’. This email will also ask you to click on a link, telling you that by doing so you can receive free products from the supermarket giant.
Of course, the whole thing is an elaborate trick, designed to collect your personal info and banking data. You might think nobody would be naive enough to actually fall into this trap, but the National Police will tell you otherwise.
