North Korea is in the grip of a crystal meth epidemic with the drug being produced on an industrial scale by corrupt officials in collusion with criminal gangs and the number of addicts spiraling.
Use of meth is reportedly so common in the shadowy communist state that offering some to house guests has been described as the equivalent of making them a cup of tea. [ ]
As one of the few commodities easily available, it is used for everything from treating colds to curbing hunger pangs during times of food shortages. But few users realize the dangers or what the side-effects will be.

Guess they have a weird combination of Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four going on there, if this is true.

Well, that’s going to put a dent in their GDP.
Emptiness and despair, meet emptiness and despair.
Perhaps maybe that explains why Dennis Rodman is going to North Korea..for a lump. Probably that explains his angry rant on some news show too.
Perhaps Rodman brought some with him to NK? Or maybe something else that is harder to come by there?
Soon they can issue food stamps and welfare payments.
Helps them forget they’re starving...
like soma in Brave New World.....
Imagine all the rotting teeth.

I did not know anyone had houses there.
Meth is the opiate of the Communist masses.... Imagine that....
For sure usage is rising.
Helps them forget theyre starving...
...and keep working.
The NK government probably doesn’t care much
What commie said ‘religion is the opiate of the masses’? (I think my Kindle is a communist. It refuses to let me type ‘commie’. It always types It ‘collie’. LOL
So ... to all those people who think drug use is always bad. We could airdrop crystal meth (which could employ some people in Detroit, too, making it) and just send it over as “humanitarian aid.”

What could POSSIBLY go wrong?
I'd think heroin would be more conducive to a grey, lifeless, dank rathole such as North Korea. But, what do I know?
LOL, funny if it weren’t so true!
Been reading a lot of interesting stuff about NK recently. Many observers think a shawowy group that has held power for longer than the little nutball has been around is really in charge. They say that the execution of Kim’s uncle and the statements made afterwards show that Kim is operating from a position of weakness, not power.
Things could blow up there soon, and I’m sure China is not happy about it.
