Grass anyone? Fund Raiser of the Century

A village in Tarragona has come up with a way to beat the recession. They propose to plant marihuana.
A smokers’ club in the village of Rasquera and say the plantation would create jobs. 

They say they will not sell it, rather it will be for the use of the club members and also for ‘therapeutic ends’.
A cannabis association in Barcelona that uses the drug for therapeutic reasons has offered to pay €36,000  to the club and sign a deal with the Town Hall and then promises to pay €550,000 a year each July for the land rental, legal and judicial costs and security which make up the project. The Town Hall won’t have to pay a centimo.
There are about 1,000 inhabitants in the village, and while they admit they could never have imagined it, the crisis is such they say they are prepared to grow whatever is needed
