Welcome dear reader! This week in PevGrow the most prolific marijuana blog in the country, I have a question that I want to shed some light on, and is, how can you create a cannabis club? As Jack the Ripper said, “Let’s go by parts”.
⭐ What is a cannabis club?
Cannabis clubs are associations that source and distribute cannabis among their members, of course all of them of age, and in an environment of privacy that reduces the risks associated with the black market or indiscriminate cultivation.
These cannabis clubs have emerged in countries where cannabis consumption has been decriminalized, as is the case in Spain, and I will calmly explain all the steps you need to take to create a cannabis club in Spain and not have any problems.
? Creation and registration
First of all, like all this kind of things, it entails a paperwork and some necessary requirements, the first of them is to hold a constitutive assembly, where they must pray at least 3 founding members, as a board of directors, occupying the positions of president, secretary and treasurer. These 3 members must approve and ratify the club’s constitution, as well as the founding minutes that will be signed by all the founding members.
The statutes of cannabis clubs in Spain usually follow the statutes created by the first registered cannabis club, the Basque club Pannagh. Once you have all the documentation ready, you must present it before the registry of your autonomous community, to make it official.
In addition, it is recommended to join FAC, the federation of cannabis associations, to legitimize its operation, and promote the movement of association in cannabis clubs throughout the country.
✨ Registration of members
To join the club, new members must complete a registration form, pay a membership fee, and provide national identification to prove age of majority. In this application, they acknowledge their habitual use of cannabis, their willingness to voluntarily belong to the association, and have no criminal record against public health.
The most important part of this request, is the forecast of consumption, ie the new member determines the approximate amount of grams consumed per month, and whose total sum taking into account all members, legitimate to the association to supply marijuana to its members.
The cannabis club must self-produce the cannabis consumed by its members, whose level can never exceed the maximum sum of all the grams that will theoretically consume all of its members
In the case of not being able to use its own cannabis, the club can resort to what is called a joint purchase, where the board of directors buys the cannabis from a third party. The conditions are the same as in the case of producing them of own form, the sum of the total will not be able to exceed the sum of the forecast of consumption of all the partners, that is like maximum 60 gr by person to the month. There is no doubt that the board of directors must be fully transparent, and notify all partners in a detailed way the purchase price of cannabis and record in their ledger.
? How it works
One of the basic rules of operation that every marijuana club must comply with is not to advertise or advocate the use of cannabis. The structure of the club must be participative and democratic, in spite of that there are positions with certain powers, so that the decision making is more rapid, it will be necessary to make participants of all the decisions to each and every one of the members.
As the association grows, jobs should be assigned to those who perform functions in the club, such as production, accounting, administration, etc. And receive a salary for it, with a perfectly legal contract.
This detail is one of the most common mistakes, and it is very important, because a failure of this caliber can ruin your wonderful club after all the effort, Don’t mess it up!
