I haven’t written anything for a while, but only because sober moments were difficult to come by once I heard about all the ‘asociaciónes de marihauna’ that have been spreading across Barcelona like wildfire.
After discovering a massive loophole in the Government’s policy towards the plant, which allows anyone to grow and smoke legally within the premises of their home, someone realized that ‘Asociaciónes’ have the same privilege… thus began the revolution
There are rules though, you don’t technically ‘buy’ from the place, you ‘contribute’… and each contribution is made towards making the Asociación more badass. To become a member you must know a member, and of course no selling or distributing in the streets, it would defeat the purpose of the Asociación in the first place.
Personally, I am a member of three clubs.. Airam, K-lite and La Rambla Dragon and all three have been such a blessing…
Airam, located near the bottom of La Rambla on Carrer Ample has been around the longest of the 3…clearly stated on my card as I’m member 10,448…and damn I loved that 3g for 10 euro deal…. experimenting with all sorts of sativas, indicas and hybrids ranging from Mr.Nice to Critical Bilbo every trip was a good trip…with jazz bands at night, yoga classes, a movie theatre screen displaying the Barca game’s n more, to go with the bar n’ restaurant… it was proof that this idea worked.
A good friend of mine soon suggested I join K-Lite, on C/ Muntaner, once entering I realized that it had a completely different atmosphere to Airam and the people treated each other like family. With employees having been transferred from the legendary ganja-city of Amsterdam, on each contribution you were given an in-depth description of the weed and the high it gave you, along with personal opinion and good advice…the music and art keep you coming back as it turned into my Sunday afternoon hangout, and with strains like OG Kush available it was hard to resist.
On my last night in Barcelona, another friend offered free membership to La Rambla Dragon, Rambla 130, an Asociación recently opened up by his brother and damn did they have good weed. I held a bud of Amnesia Haze the size of an infant (I even cradled it) as they break it down in front of you to your specifications. With friendly people and sexy latinas working there, it will be damn hard not to go back… who doesn’t like eye candy with their joint?
For all the ganja-smokers in Barcelona who haven’t signed onto one yet I suggest you get to it!! You simply can’t go wrong… and for those still skeptical about the plant, 0 deaths have been directly associated with it in the history of mankind…enough said.
Since it is the holiday season I would like to state..
Merry Jane and Happy Rasta-day’s everyone
