    China’s pressure to curb illegal Canadian cannabis imports underscores the country’s power in the growing market. And with China producing over 50 percent of globally, the United States may be the country to suffer the most from its laws and restrictions on the five-leafed plant.Shutterstock Canada’s legalization of cannabis this year wasn’t met with red envelope-like celebration by Chinese government officials. The Chinese government has long blamed the maple-blanketed country for its handling of tons of illegal cannabis imports. Those officials have a right to be somewhat perturbed, as roughly 20% of Canada’s total marijuana production ($1.2 billion worth) was sold illegally beyond the country’s borders last year, a good portion believed to be China-bound. Were it another disconcerted country it might seem less hypocritical because while China is displeased with Canada for contributing to its cannabis problem, the country itself produces 50% of the world’s supply. China’s crops are largely hemp, and thus, the non-psychotropic and fiber-rich variety of cannabis. China Is Blaming Canada For Its Cannabis Problem But Produces 50 Percent Of The World’s Supply
