Well it’s not for everyone, but Notes from Madrid is duty bound to bring you the gourmet, the classy, and the downright seedy sides of the city… Which leads us to San Canuto (Canuto = Spliff/Joint) - today’s annual smoke-in where Universidad Autónoma de Madrid students gather together to get thoroughly stoned. Despite freezing fog, heavy security, and banning alcohol on campus, reports a massive, yet strangely relaxed, turnout. Photos (of students with illicit substances) here.

Bizarre city, next thing you know they’ll be blessing dogs
