A dataset on coca bush, opium poppy, and cannabis cultivation locations throughout the world.

The drug cultivation dataset contains information on coca bush, opium poppy, and cannabis cultivation throughout the world. Given that drug cultivation covers larger areas the cultivation areas are presented as polygons. In addition to the location information, the shapefiles include information on when commercial, large-scale production in the region started and whether there has been traditional production for local use prior the more intensive cultivation.
