Classical music is thought to grow better marijuana

Five men have been arrested in Spain on suspicion of producing accused of producing 2,000 marijuana plants in three apartments, playing classical music 24 hours a day to improve the quality.

Two of the men are Swedish, two Spanish and one German.

Their sophistication is unusual among the criminal classes, but local reports do not specify which classics they play.

My money is on Tchaikovsky, followed by Berlioz, Gesualdo and Stockhausen.

Your guess?



  • Jim says:

    Marijuana is also known to grow classical music.

  • Ben G. says:

    Ha! No need to smoke dope when listening Gesualdo. The music itself already contains enough THC to give you the munchies.

  • Pseudonymuss says:

    Presumably Philip Grass.

  • Rgiarola says:

    For Indica Palestrina, Schubert, Debussy, Schoenberg and Gubaidulina
    For Sativa Paganino, J. Strauss, Ravel and Rautavaara

  • John Borstlap says:

    My fly on the wall of the neighbours tells me it was Scriabine.

  • PaulD says:

    I’m guessing Revueltas, if they’re growing Acapulco Gold.

  • Byrwec Ellison says:

    I’m guessing they had Scriabin’s “Poem of Ecstasy” on a continuous loop.

  • op61 says:

    scriabin for sure, berlioz perhaps and shostakovich also likely

  • Peter Owen says:

    Johann Christian Innocenz Bonaventura Cannabich possibly.

  • Wai Kit Leung says:

    Is marijuana thought to produce better classical music as well? Are these growers musicians?
