Morocco Is The Number One Exporter Of Cannabis

Most Marijuana In The World, Might Be From Africa

According to some recent reports by international authorities and which where released today in Morocco, this country earns a lot of income from the sale of cannabis and it is also the main exporter of this herb in the world.  The reports state that this country exports most of the marijuana that is grown there, to Europe, which is one of the top markets consuming this herb.  

The reports also state that Morocco is still exporting more cannabis than Afghanistan and Jamaica, which are said to produce around 12000 tons of hash per year.  The reports also state that even though production of cannabis is lower than in previous year, Morocco still produces around 38000 tons per year, which is certainly a lot of weed.  

It is suspected that around 57000 hectares of Morocco are used to grow marijuana and that most of these plantations are located in the Ketama Mountains. There are also speculations about more than 89000 families in this country, living off the growth or exportation of cannabis, which means that it is critical for the economy of the country.  

Even if some farmers know that they are being used by organized crime and that they are not getting paid nearly as much as what the final consumer pays for this herb in Europe or the US, they are still growing cannabis and they will surely keep growing it for years to come.  

This is yet another reason for regulating marijuana worldwide and allowing farmers in Morocco and other countries, to actually make a living, providing medicine and recreation to others.  Please remember to share and like this blog post, so that more people can read about this and promote the regulation of cannabis worldwide.  Don't forget to sign up for our free newsletter, so you can receive more interesting news about marijuana, directly in your mail.
