The Chinese government is saying that they have located the largest cannabis field in the country’s history using satellite imagery. How big? You don’t need to know that, apparently. China isn’t saying. Just take their word for it, apparently. It’s huge.
“In Jilin and Inner Mongolia, a marijuana field that is the largest on record since the establishment of the country [in 1949]was discovered,” according to the China News Service. The satellite also showed several previously-unknown border crossing paths and poppy fields.
Some contend that the release on the domestic use of satellite and high-level graphical software – not typical of China – is to hint at China’s military satellite technology abilities.
