Two-hundred years ago Britain started selling the Chinese opium from British India Ė to balance Londonís trade deficit of Chinese tea and silks. China didnít like foreignersí breaking their laws and causing widespread drug addiction. The destruction of 20,000 chests of opium in Guangzhou resulted, after British aggression, in Hong Kong becoming a crown colony.
