Here Are the Top 10 Marijuana-Producing Nations

In the past we’ve shown you the 10 countries that smoke the most marijuana in the entire world. But just because a country uses a lot of cannabis doesn’t necessarily mean it grows it as well.

Every year the UN compiles a report about drug use around the world. One of the things they attempt to measure is how much marijuana every country grows. Unfortunately, since cannabis is legal in very few countries and therefore growing it is illegal, it’s hard to determine exactly how much is produced. But here is our estimate based of data compiled by the UN of the top 10 marijuana producing countries:

10. India

9. Nigeria

8. Canada

7. Jamaica

6. Paraguay

5. Colombia

4. Mexico

3. Afghanistan

2. Morocco

1. United States

Other top marijuana producing countries: Mozambique, Ghana, Swaziland, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Laos, Lebanon, Nepal, Netherlands and Albania

Of course these numbers could change when Canada legalizes recreational marijuana. We could see our neighbors north of the border increasing their yields by a significant amount.

Also, the UN didn’t report how much marijuana was produced in each country, so these are simply estimates based on their report as well as opinions of other experts.

'South Park' is well known for satirizing pretty much everything happening in current pop culture, and the cannabis industry is no exception. Last week, the popular adult cartoon released a satirical ad for their fictional cannabis brand, Tegridy Farms. The mock brand was originally introduced in a South Park episode that aired last October on the same day that Canada moved to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide. The new Tegridy Farms ad takes shots at the current landscape of the cannabis industry by claiming that it's being run by "a bunch of young corporate banker types" who pretend to be interested in repairing the wrongs done by the War on Drugs, but they're really only interested in making "an easy buck for themselves." "Fuck those guys," says the video's narrator.
