Britain made a shitload of dosh out of drug running to China and like all drug runners it had to be enforced a couple of times.
Not so good for China though, before the Opium wars it was the biggest economy in the world and after it had halved.
In the end they started to grow their own, to India's loss.

It wasn't just Britain the French got into it as well.
