The SA Business Insider reports. Eswatini farmers growing cannabis known as ‘Swazi gold’ may face economic ruin after its main source of income, neighbouring country South Africa, legalized the private growth and consumption of their country, reports Reuters.

“I need some money from ganja (cannabis), secondly this thing is a game like to me because I farm and sometimes some cops come and burn it,” said Mbuso, a farmer who has been growing cannabis for fourteen years in the country formally known a Swaziland.

Mbuso is just one of scores of farmers in this small kingdom who depend on high demand for their potent cannabis strain.  They sell a gram of cannabis for about R7, that is then smuggled into South African and Mozambique where it is typically sold for about 10 times the price it was bought.
