The settlement’s 800 adults, who live 160km (100 miles) south-west of Barcelona, voted in favour of the scheme to rent out 7ha (17 acres) of land to a cannabis consumersâ€™ association.
Mayor Bernat Pellisa – who claims the scheme will create new jobs and reduce organised crime – believes the town council can pay off the debt within two years.
Speaking before the vote on Tuesday, he said: ‘It will have positive social and economic effects.
‘We want to put an end to organised crime, put an end to the black market and the underground economy.’
Some 56.3 per cent of the population voted in favour of allowing cannabis to be grown in the referendum.
Apparently the lawyers are arguing about it.
But if one town gets out of debt through legal cannabis, you can bet others will follow.
