Cannabis (Matekoane) in Lesotho

Africa is confirming its role as a production area, a transit territory and a consumer market. South Africa is probably the world's leading producer of marijuana, but most of it is consumed on the domestic market, which also absorbs the output of neighboring [sic] countries, notably Lesotho, where cannabis is the main cash crop.
I knew we grew a lot of pot, the excuse generally given to enquiring kids being, "It's horse fodder--it leaves a lasting sheen on their skin," or something like that. What I didn't know was that we were that big a grower. If we can grow matekoane on that large a scale and illegally, imagine the agricultural heights we could reach with asparagus, legally.
