Back on March 2 HMJ ran a story about a picturesque Spanish village that was going to vote on allowing a large scale grow in their town. The villagers motivation was rent and tax revenue. This village is broke. That vote took place. Here’s how it went.
The Spanish village of Rasquera, population 960, put the idea to the vote Tuesday, and a majority of its citizens approved — but not the 75 percent needed. The seven-member town council first approved the idea in March, but it ignited such controversy that the mayor agreed to put it to a referendum in the hamlet of mostly retirees. For the plan to go ahead, the yes camp needed at least 75 percent of the vote, but just 308 people said ‘Si’ — only 56.3 percent — while 239 said ‘No,’ according to results published on the village’s Website.
The result effectively ends the idea to lease a plot of land to an association of marijuana buffs in Barcelona who wanted to pay Rasquera €1.3 million ($1.7 million) over two years. About 40 jobs — growing, harvesting and packaging the pot — were envisioned.
We get knocked down, we get back up. There will be elections in the future. Find this story at The Washington Post.
