Weed is the most popular and the most in demand illegal drug in the entire world, a fact which has provided no insignificant amount of motivation to the 8 countries that produce the most illegal weed in the world. The reason weed is so popular is that is is comparatively easy to grow and can provide a feeling of being high and happy, allowing the person consuming the drug to feel relaxed and light headed, and away from the normal stresses that life brings.

The reason it is illegal is because weed has certain side effects associated with it, which are generally temporary in nature and can include but are not limited to a reduction in the person’s motor skills, redness of the eyes, nausea, dizziness, weakness, dry mouth, paranoia and can also result in short-term memory losses.

Furthermore, people addicted to weed would be able to seek counsel without having to worry about prison.

We compared two criteria to determine our rankings; firstly, the cultivation of weed, which was in hectares, and secondly, the production of weed, which was in tonnes. The combination of these two criteria determined our ranking, which is as follows:
