    vice.com has a nice article on the use of marijuana in North Korea. Despite the well deserved reputation for being a highly controlled society it seems the use of marijuana is rather higher than most might expect. That said it seems there is a rather large difference between how it is viewed there and how it is often viewed by certain groups in much of the rest of the world.

    Though it is viewed as something of a poor person's vice it seems it is enjoyed by a rather broad section of North Korean society and even finds fans among the military there.

    I guess if you're starving to death because of a communist dictatorship induced famine you may as well roll a joint before you die. North Korea is also a hot bed for cannibalism for what it's worth

    Indeed, it's even the subject of North Korean music.

    Not sure if I would want to smoke weed if I was already starving what with all the munchies.... Of course maybe that explains the cannibalism?

    That's more like torturing yourself even more, why would you roll a joint only to remember there's no food!. Sad days for those Koreans

    So that's why they are all brainwashed into supporting dictators, they have been smoking so much weed it's killed their brains.
