According to the 2007 UNODC World Drug Report, “Mexico and the USA may be the world’s largest cannabis herb producers” (page 104). According to the 2008 UNODC World Drug Report, cannabis production in Mexico was estimated at 7,400 metric tonnes, and cannabis production in the United States was 4,700.

Thus, the United States ranks second in cannabis herb production. Mexico ranks first.
