World Map of Cannabis Users

October 23rd, 2013 | By


I do love these data maps showing where people especially like to have a toke! It’a quite clear from this picture that cannabis use in English speaking countries is definitely high – why would that be?

Interesting to note the lack of data for Africa and Asia. No data is shown in India for example where I know firsthand that bhang is sold at licensed government shops and has been part of the culture for thousands of years. So this map is a little conservative.

No data is shown also for Hong Kong which is without doubt full of drugs also, I can confirm. Lots of the cannabis there comes from nearby Thailand.

France is interesting also -for some it is quite a surprise to discover that the French are actually more into their weed than the Brits. If you can believe that!  They are though.

One does have to wonder where this data comes from. I certainly don’t know of any smokers who have participated in a United Nations survey on which drugs they do or don’t consume.
