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.

US Federal Medical Marijuana Bill Might Be Approved

Medical Cannabis Bill Is Gaining Popularity

Although 23 American states, have already decided to legalize marijuana for medical purposes, this herb is still classified as a Schedule I drug, according to Federal US laws, but this might change soon, as a new medical cannabis bill was recently presented and it is gaining lots of followers very quickly.  
This is certainly great news for the medical marijuana industry and for everyone who needs cannabis to survive.  One of the people who decided to sign onto this new proposal, is Senator Dean Heller, who stated "the time has come, for the federal government to stop impeding the doctor-patient relationship in the states that have decided their own medical marijuana policies."

Heller also stated, "this bipartisan legislation puts Americans who are suffering first by allowing Nevada's medical marijuana patients, providers and businesses that are in compliance with state law, to no longer be in violation of federal law and vulnerable to federal prosecution."

Senator Barbara Boxer, is another supporter of this new medical cannabis proposal and she is a believer of patients, doctors and caregivers, being able to use marijuana as a medicine, without having to worry about being prosecuted under federal law.  

President Obama has also stated that Congress might decriminalize marijuana and change its classification, if more states decide to allow its people to use this herb as medicine and there are certainly millions more, who are in favor of this new medical marijuana bill.  

Hopefully this bill will gain more momentum in the next few days and it will be approved soon. It is time to decriminalize marijuana worldwide and to allow patients to use cannabis as medicine everywhere.
