Spanish tax office wants a piece of the large amount of black money circulating on marijuana and prostitution. Tax Inspectors require legalization of the two areas to bring in more revenue to the Spanish exchequer.
According to the latest estimates from the Tax stands prostitution and brothels established in Spain for an annual turnover of around 18 billion Euros. If the income was taxed at 30 percent, it would give six billion Euros extra per year in tax revenues to the Spanish State.
The same would apply if marijuana was legalized as a “therapeutic drug”. It would generate a good income to the Spanish state budget and reduce the problem of the illegal traders and associated crime and violence, said tax inspectors.
From early June, wants Statistical Institute required that an expected turnover of drugs and prostitution are included in the projections for the country’s gross domestic product (GDP), which is the case in several other countries. The evidence suggests that the revenue from this illegal activity constitutes about three percent, or about 30 billion Euros of Spanish GDP.
This means that Spain GDP in October will increase significantly, but it has nothing to do with a real growth of Spain’s GDP, property Marbella.
Plans for the legalization of marijuana coming at the same time as Barcelona’s City Council announced that there will be a ban on open several cannabis clubs in the city this year.
The reason is the growing suspicion of trafficking from several clubs. Barcelona City Council wants tighter regulation of the 160 clubs located in Barcelona. The decision comes just days after the first closing of a club for alleged illegal trading.
Marijuana clubs in Barcelona has fueled a boom in ‘cannabis tourists “looking for drugs, even if it is only for club members. Members of marijuana clubs have the opportunity to grow their own cannabis and smoke it. But some marijuana clubs are now accused of buying cannabis on the black market and attract tourists to buy.
