While China has made cannabis free supporting the market and are growing and
producing cannabis on large farms, using it for industrial purposes, clothing, ointments, drinks
and food, medicinal purposes. For some reasons unknown cannabis is still illegal in South Africa. The Apartheid legislation: the system of racial segregation in South Africa known as apartheid was implemented and enforced by a large number of acts and other laws and using these laws to in-prison black people with no reason just for having a plant on them using the law to hurt the people. For many individuals who want to grow the plant for industrial and personal purposes, this law has put them under pressure and does not give them the
power to create wealth for the economy of this country. This leaves the public of South Africa with the impression that government is hiding the truth about the cannabis and giving unfair advantages to these producers. One of the biggest farmers of cannabis is Jiang’s a farmer who is in China’s forestry and is one of the country’s major centers for the crop. It has been proven that the plant is not a drug and can treat traumatic stress disorder and research shows that cannabis can be useful in different ways besides just recreational use. Every year in April, Jiang Xingquan sets aside a part of his farm in northern China to grow cannabis. The size of the plot varies with market demand but over the last few years it has been about 600 hectares.
Hemp and dagga is one and the same plant of the Cannabis sativa plant, which also includes names better known as marijuana. The difference between the two is the way it is planted, with hemp varieties planted like wheat and when planted for seed it is planted like corn. Both the hemp and marijuana strains of the plant also contain cannabidiol, or CBD, THC, CBN a compound that has been used to treat a wide range of conditions such as epilepsy
and Parkinson’s disease. Authorities in the province turned a blind eye to its production before depenalization and regulating it last year. Another major growing area is in Yunnan
province where the plant’s production has been regulated since 2003.Together, these areas account for about half of the world’s largest commercial cropland under hemp cannabis cultivation, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. Thanks to government support and a long tradition, China has quietly become a superpower in the plant’s production and research. For the farmers, the crop is green gold – hemp brings in more than 10,0000 yuan (US$1,5000) per hectare, compared to just a few thousand yuan for more common crops like corn. It also has few natural enemies so there’s little need for expensive pesticides. South African farmers are in the stone age as we are speaking Switzerland , France , Germany, Canada, Swaziland, Australia , Holland etc., have made cannabis farming free. The USA at this time has made millions of rands on taxing the sale!
