A faint smell of cannabis smoke hangs in the air as Susana relaxes on the sofa with her mother Juana and lights up a joint. Welcome to Pachamama – one of the hundreds of cannabis clubs that are making Barcelona rival Amsterdam as a smoker's haven.Dealing in cannabis is illegal in Spain but the law does not penalize growing it for private consumption nor setting up smokers' associations.Half of Spain's cannabis clubs are in Barcelona, which tops the rankings on WeBeHigh, a travel advice website for soft drug users.There are also many clubs in the northwestern Basque region, whose regional government has announced it is drawing up new regulations for cannabis use.For two years now Susana has come once a week to Pachamama to buy five grams (just under a fifth of an ounce) of marijuana.
