Most of the western tourist try the drug during their visit to Nepal and law enforcement as well as price is not an issue in the country as you can find it for a really cheap price in Nepal.
We have another Asian country on the list and this time it is India. India accounts for 4.63% of hashish production in the world and that is quite high. The government is quite strict about the drug abuse in country and marijuana can only be cultivated after receiving a special license from the government. The production can only be used for medical purposes but people are still able to grow marijuana and produce hashish in the country.

Lebanon is located in western part of Asia and it is yet another Asian country to be among the top 10 hashish producing countries in the world. In terms of the number, Lebanon has 5.14% of hashish production in the world and the number is surely very high when you consider the size of the country. We are not sure about the legalities related to the use of the drug but the drug is really harmful.
On number 4, we have a European country and this time it is Netherlands. The country accounts for 5.32% of hashish production in the world and you can find hashish in Netherlands very easily. The drug is illegal and if caught with the drug then you can face serious consequences like long term imprisonment but people are often caught smuggling the drug in the country which is surely a big mistake on their part. The country is slowly trying to find the solution to this ever-growing problem of drug addiction.
This comes as no surprise as the law and order condition in Pakistan is really poor. The country accounts for 6.02% of hashish production in the world and what is worse is that it is solely responsible for smuggling the drug in the neighboring countries. The Pakistan smuggles the drug in India, Afghanistan, and Nepal so as to gain access to illegal funds. Most of the neighboring states are quite tough on Pakistan when it comes to smuggling but there are certainly some loopholes which are exploited now and then.
Morocco accounts for 11.38% of hashish production in the world and the country also smuggles the drug to Europe. As per one of the report, 80% of hashish in Europe is directly sourced from Morocco. In addition to this, the country has been dealing with other drugs like cocaine as well which again finds its way in western part of Europe.
On the first rank, we have Afghanistan and the presence of Taliban is one of the reasons for the high production of the drug in this country. As per some of the reports, over 3 million people are involved in the illegal business of drug and these people are ruled by a drug lord or mafia. In addition to this, the country accounts for 20.75% of hashish production in the world.
These were the countries that have the highest production of Hashish and the numbers are quite shocking. Even after strict government control, the hashish is quite common in some of the Asian countries. Well whatever it is, you must avoid Hashish as it is surely not a good drug. It can also land you in various legal troubles along with giving you many health issues.
