Green Paradise intervened - Raids to the CBD vending in Catalonia

In a world where CBD cannabis is a constant topic of debate, a recent case in Catalonia has set off alarm bells. Three individuals have been arrested on charges of selling marijuana and fourteen others have been arrested as responsible for the establishments where they allegedly sold cannabis with the appearance of legal CBD.

Context of the case
The detainees and the establishments
The detainees are accused of selling cannabis with the appearance of CBD, a legal substance, in several establishments. The Mossos and the newspaper El País have been the entities in charge of publicizing this case to the public opinion.

The accusation and CBD
The sale of marijuana and the emergence of CBD
The investigators warn that the sale of CBD in this format, in buds, even if it does not exceed 0.2% THC, is not allowed in Catalonia, as reported by El Nacional de Cataluña.

Statements by the Mossos and El País
The Mossos and El País have reported on the arrest of the individuals and the establishments involved, highlighting the illegality of their actions.

El Nacional de Cataluña on the CBD
El Nacional de Cataluña has highlighted the danger this represents for the CBD flower and CBD hashish sector, with 20 of the 25 samples exceeding 0.2% THC.

Analysis of the samples
Exceeding 0.2% THC
This fact is crucial as they are accusing the whole sector of drug trafficking, regardless of the percentage of THC contained in their products.

Impact on the CBD Sector
Economic Loss and Business Failure
The economic loss and bankruptcy of CBD companies by the police is making it a very risky sector.

Duration of the Investigation
The investigation, which has almost taken two years, leaves much to be desired, showing a profound lack of knowledge of the current laws.

Legal Ignorance
Change from 0.2% to 0.3% and Supreme Court Jurisprudence
Police, prosecutors and judges do not know the laws that changed from 0.2% to 0.3% years ago, nor the supreme court jurisprudence that clarifies that below 0.8% THC is legal.

International Laws
International laws speak of 1% THC and/or a psychoactivity level of less than 1.

This case highlights the importance of a thorough and up-to-date knowledge of cannabis and CBD laws to avoid injustice and damage to the sector.
