Spain's highest court has declared a cannabis club in Bilbao in violation of public health - the court’s first ruling on such clubs - which could set precedent for smoking collectives in the future. The Supreme Court decision was the first time the court had ruled on the subject of marijuana collectives. The court said that the club in Bilbao had committed a crime against public health because the group’s "structure and functioning exceeded the philosophy" of shared consumption.
