Cannabis is by far the most frequently consumed illegal drug in Europe, although producing it privately is illegal in the EU. Right outside the gates of the European Union, in Belgium, Cannabis Social Clubs (CSC) are being founded, organizations that are a bit like allotment associations for adult cannabis smokers. Plants are grown and harvested in strictly secret locations. Every club member gets one of the plants from a harvest, and pays an annual fee for it.
