  1. 1. The Chinese government prefers that people steal QUIETLY and NON-VIOLENTLY, so shit doesn’t become OBVIOUS to foreign investors.

    2. They’ve fucking already pwned us because their government officials’ privileged children were the only ones who got the H1B Visas the US was giving out. Congress gives visas, Chinese government officials’ kids get internships with big-ass US corporations. Big Pharma, Big Oil, Defense Contractors, Big You Fucking Name it, bro. Who steals names? Derp.

    3. Ever been to Toronto or Vancouver? Have a look at who’s driving what and parking it where. Look at real estate prices. Downtown condo towers, suburban homes. Ni hao ma, motherfucker.

    4. I’ve been to China 15 times, to nearly 40 cities. Horror stories wif me own four eyes mate. Also me own two hands. Vape time. Wrote the last line in advance. Cheers!

    5.. You could at least have credited Bloomberg News. Correcting their spelling doesn’t make this an original work. I mean, seriously. =)

      Joint Blog doesn’t make up these pieces, they just find them and post them here. I don’t think they’re trying to take credit, just passing things along so it will be easier to find weed news in one place.

      I know some expats over there and they all smoke weed without much concern for the law. One guy grows it. Wonder what the offenses were? Smack? LSD?
