Police raid Heaven

Heaven, the Madrid downtown club that recently saw the murder of a doorman and a promoter, was raided by the police last weekend. Police report seizing more than 200 doses of various drugs — including cocaine, ecstasy, popper, speed, hashish and marijuana. Drug possession in small quantities for individual consumption is not a crime in Spain, though dealing is. The police intervention was part of an ongoing operation to eradicate drug consumption in public places, the police explained. Thirty-six people were arrested, but their detention was not for violence, carrying weapons, or selling drugs: Police arrested one person carrying forged documents and 35 illegal immigrants.
