A Tiny African Kingdom Wants to Export Its Cannabis to the World

Marijuana fever is now a worldwide phenomenon. There does not appear to be a corner of the globe where entrepreneurs and governments are not banking on a big score. One example is the small African mountain nation of Lesotho with a population of a little over 2 million and which is completely surrounded by South Africa. Marijuana has been widely grown (illegally) in the country for forever and, as in places like Jamaica, is embedded in the culture. Now the government believes that there is a huge pot of gold from the development of legal plantations to supply a burgeoning worldwide market. The idea seems to have much merit not only to them but to the foreign (moistly, Canadian) investors who are beating a oath to their door.
