They were stealing electricity to run their grow ops, and they were operating illegally. They are not likely going to get anything back. Spain has variable laws regarding weed in the different autonomous communities (similar to states). More likely they will get jail time and fines. In most regions like where these busts took place, legal cannabis clubs are only legal as long as they distribute only to a restricted list of legal adults, provide only the amount of drugs necessary for immediate consumption, and they do not earn a profit. Growing weed for seed and commercial profit is therefore not legal. The seed companies in Spain have taken advantage of lax law enforcement, but that is obviously changing now. Dinafem is a big company in Spain and I belive is the the biggest fem seed producer there.Crikey, nothing quite like a latin temper.
Hope the folks get their material back. They may have to reach a very costly "settlement" with the tax authority.
Uh, no. This bust was in southern Spain. Spain like... in Europe? Humboldt Seed Co. is in California and grows weed legally there under license, and sells seeds legally in state through licensed weed shops.Was humbolt seed involved?
Well, greed rules supreme. They were also only paying growers pennies for growing and producing seeds, while selling them for many dollars each. The profit motive is what Spain is going after. All the laws there in Spain that I have read that allow for Cannabis Clubs do not allow them to make any profit. The stealing electricity thing only came to 'light' (pun intended) when they made the busts of the grow ops.That sucks, I've never tried them or anything, but some people liked them. Of course, the fuck they doing stealing electricity? Growing weed is one thing, but stealing is just stupid, they definitely had the money. They really should have had enough money to go solar really.

Funny though, the DinaFem web site is up and running like nothing happened. Word to the wise: I would not buy anything from them at this time.
