A young girl is surrounded by marijuana plants in a pygmy village overlooking Mount Nyiragongo, a volcano just outside Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo. This image was made during the @natgeo news story “Why Pygmies Are Dealing Weed to Survive,” published last week. Indigenous communities in the Congo have harvested marijuana as long as they can remember. Now, with no land to call their own, they turn to selling—with dire consequences.
