Users And Consumers

Criminal defense

At Brotsanbert we have a large team of lawyers with a high degree of specialization in crimes against public health, especially those related to cannabis, and a wide and extensive professional experience in defending the interests of both individuals (users and growers) and companies and associations.

More than 18 years of experience in the defense of personal and collective self-cultivation with around 85% of acquittals on these specific issues have made us contribute to the development of a jurisprudence on the annual collection of cannabis for self-consumption that better reflects this social reality so unfairly persecuted.

Around 1500 cases with a percentage of acquittals of 85%.

Administrative defense

In its article 10.1, the Spanish Constitution proclaims that the foundation of the political order and social peace lies, first of all, in the “dignity of the person”, in “the inviolable rights that are inherent” and in the right to free development of personality.

The current Spanish legal context in relation to the consumption, cultivation and supply of cannabis is determined by Law 17/1967, of April 8, whose scope and validity are in any case limited by respect for fundamental values ​​and rights and public and individual liberties guaranteed by the Spanish Constitution of 1978.
Therefore, the prohibition of consumption and supply of narcotic drugs, which is established in the aforementioned pre-constitutional and obsolete law, should be understood only in force as regards the principles of suitability, proportionality and non-discrimination, by affecting the aforementioned Constitutional rights and principles, and can not be in any way absolute when it comes to a substance that does not cause serious harm to health, carried out freely and privately by persons of legal age, and must be understood as justified in terms of consumption led to carried out by vulnerable groups, such as therapeutic cannabis users, highlighting here the constitutional right to health (art.43 CE).

The current Spanish legal framework, although it does not consider the consumption of cannabis in the private sphere a crime, it does sanction it if it is carried out in public spaces, applying Organic Law 4/2015 on Citizen Security, the same happens with tenure for self-consumption, clashing outright with the individual rights and freedoms enshrined in the Spanish Constitution that we mentioned before.
For all this, and for our accumulated experience in the associative and activist world, at Brotsanbert we resort, from rigor and professionalism, to administrative penalties for cannabis use or possession, since we understand that the vast majority of them are unfair and disproportionate , and go against the public and individual rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Spanish Constitution.
