Canadian citizen sentenced to death in China for alleged role in drug ring

A Canadian citizen has been sentenced to death by a Chinese court for his alleged role in a drug ring that attempted to export methamphetamine to Australia. The Dalian Intermediate People’s Court in China’s northeast province of Liaoning handed down the death sentence against Robert Lloyd Schellenberg of Abbotsford, B.C. in a hastily staged retrial of an earlier conviction on the charges.


7 Pivotal moments in cannabis history

The history of marijuana goes back nearly 5,000 years, and through most of its history, weed was considered beneficial for both your physical and your mental health. That all changed around the beginning of the 20th century with a concentrated campaign of prohibition and criminalization, writes Deb Powers.


China is secretly becoming a global cannabis leader

China farms a massive amount of hemp and currently holds more than half of the globe’s cannabis patents.

As Canada prepares for the legalization of cannabis this fall, its poised to become an international leader in the booming industry. But one unlikely competitor may stand in its way: China.


China grows half of the world's cannabis

Nowadays, all eyes in the cannabis industry are trained on Canada, which is poised to become a major game-changer once recreational cannabis becomes legal on October 17. But as exciting as that is, we shouldn't overlook the silent giant in the cannabis industry: China, which by some estimates produces 50 per cent of the world's cannabis.


China is blaming Canada for its cannabis problem but produces 50 percent of the world's supply

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.

Trump Tuesday: Jimmy Kimmel's shocking discovery about Trump merchandise

Trump and his fellow Republicans suffered a major loss in Pennsylvania last night with Democrat Conor Lamb beating Republican Rick Saccone in a district that Trump won by 20 points.

Trump Tuesday: Dog statue of Donald Trump in China mall is tickling the world funny

A mall in northern China has installed a larger-than-life canine statue with more than a passing resemblance to US President Donald Trump to welcome the coming Year of the Dog.

The giant pooch towers above shoppers in Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi province, sporting a slick golden pompadour, angled brows and a red scarf with one index finger raised in a distinctly Trumpian manner.


Why isn’t anyone talking about china and its bid to rule the cannabis industry?

A curious bit of weed-related news hit the AP wire earlier this month that should have raised more eyebrows than it actually did.

“$80M worth of pot seized, Chinese nationals suspected.”

Oddly, the newsflash about the seizure in Washington state didn’t seem to register so much as a national facial tic from newsreaders anaesthetized by more pressing issues — including Donald Trump’s ongoing Twitteruptions and assorted holiday mega-deals.
