Now a lot of things are allowed in North Korea, but pot may be.
That's right, it sounds like North Korea has a very liberal stance when is comes to the ganja, so much so that it makes the US look like schmucks.
HuffPo recently accounted the experiences of one British traveler who, "Purchased a grocery bag full of weed at an indoor market in rural North Korea and smoked it with impunity both at outdoor parks and monuments, as well as in restaurants and bars."
That certainly sounds fine. While we cannot know how long pot has been okay in North Korea (NoKo and the USA aren't exactly chatty), a 2010 report by "Open Radio for North Korea" cited an anonymous North Korean source as saying that Kim Jong Un's regime does not consider marijuana to be a drug.
"Cannabis grows wildly in North Korea and has even been sold abroad by government agencies as a way to earn foreign currency," said Sokeel Park, the director of research and strategy at Liberty In North Korea, a California-based human rights group that provides protection and aid to North Korean escapees.
"It's not clear what the official law on the books states, but in any case, marijuana, which is known as 'yoksam' in North Korea, is not prioritized by the government and is therefore not treated as an illegal drug," Park continued.
Your move, USA.
