    North Korea Has A Surprising Attitude To Marijuana
    Adam Taylor | Jan. 15, 2013


    In North Korea, illicit drug use usually results in a strict punishment. For example, in 2010 one source told NKRadio.org that the government had begun putting signs up saying ‘any drug users will face a firing squad should they be caught' following outbreaks of meth-amphetamine usage in the country.

    However, that attitude reportedly doesn't extend to all drugs — in particular, Marijuana is an accepted part of life in the country.

    Benjamin R. Young has taken a look at the country's relationship with marijuana for NKNews.org:



    Young reports that the drug is readily available from the black market, and that marijuana sprouts wildly in many areas. Newspapers are used as rolling papers, with pictures of the Supreme Leader and his family carefully avoided.

    So that's why they call it "Best Korea"...

    Not really, Kim Jong Il was the biggest consumer of Hennessy in the world for a few years when he was alive.
