The Yakusa sold Opium in China? I've never heard this joke. I know that they have close ties to their like-minded Chinese partners and cooperate closely on Japanese soil.

I wonder from where the Chinese people got their opium before the British supplied it to them?

Wiki seems to suggest that opium usage began in the 1500's, well before the British started dumping it into China.

http://www.poppies.org/news/104267739031... says

"The opium poppy probably reached China about the 7th century A.D. through the efforts of Arab traders who advocated its use for medicinal purposes. In Chinese literature, however, there are earlier references to its use. The noted Chinese surgeon Hua To of the Three Kingdoms (220-264 A.D.) used opium preparations and Cannabis indica for his patients to swallow before undergoing major surgery."

Opium useage according to wiki says it kicked off in the 1500, would have got into China via the silk road from the Golden Crescent which constants of Afghanistan, Iran, and Pakistan. Or it would have travel through Yunnan with the bordering countries of the golden triangle i.e

Myanmar (Burma), Laos, Vietnam, and Thailand a route which is still used today.

Opium has many medicinal uses.What was evil about the Anglo American Jewish Zoroastrian opium
trade was that it was enormous and that it was carried out at gunpoint.There were two brutal opium wars
in which massacres occurred and loot and vandalism on a monstrous scale.The Boston Brahmins and
the Tatas and the Sassoons made fortunes out of the trade.The effect on the Chinese people was
devastating.
