North Korea is a closed box for more than half a century, and a country full of obscurity, over the eyes of the whole world. North Korea, a chain of traditions that is unprecedented in the world, will make you even more amazed after reading this article. In North Korea, illegal drugs are given as gifts on birthdays, graduations and various festivals. And this phenomenon is quite popular. For many people celebrating the new moon year is a nice time to spend time with the family and means a nice feast and a gift. The gifts that can be given at special times such as this can be dress, flower or maybe a snow globe. But in North Korea, people give each other crystal meth.
North Korean citizens are captive of an increasingly popular gift culture
The North Koreans are in the tradition of giving crystal meth as a gift that is becoming more popular day by day. Crystal meth, known in North Korea as “Pingdu”, is used as a gift on special occasions such as birthdays, graduations and the new moon year. Recently it has become an extremely popular gift. While the crystal meth is considered illegal in the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea, experts’ claims are that the drugs are not concealed at all and are often presented as gifts among citizens.
Crystal Meth is used in North Korea as an energy drink like Red Bull.
Andrei Lankov, a professor at the Kookmin University, who specializes about the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea, said, “Crystal meth has been seen as a powerful energy drink in North Korea for a while.” The words of those who migrated from North Korea to South Korea also support these claims. Due to the lack of health services in the country, the use of opium and crystal meth is also quite common. People consume opium and crystal meth as if they were smoking.
The news that crystal met was a popular gift in the new moon was released by Radio Free Asia
In this year’s new moon, the United States-backed company Radio Free Asia has announced that drugs such as crystal meth in North Korea have become a popular gift. According to an anonymous report, the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea alleged that illegal drugs were used as gifts and most of the buyers were young North Koreans. Even among the youths mentioned, there are even elementary school students. According to the source of the news, students use crystal meth to have a nice time during the holidays. They’re trying to get a good time out of their tough lives. Since the use of drugs in North Korea is no longer embarrassing for individuals, the lack of illegal drugs is felt during holidays and special days.
The information in the report by Radio Free Asia is based on the opinion of several experts and researchers.
Although the report has not been fully confirmed, its accuracy can be confirmed from many sources. The information in the report is based on the opinions of researchers and experts. Justin Hastings, a political scientist at the University of Sydney, says that drugs like crystal meth are now actually legal in North Korea. According to Justin Hastings, the authorities do not impose any sanctions on this issue because they take large amounts of bribes. This bribery chain runs to the very top of the hierarchy, and this corruption has made it easier for North Korean people to access illegal drugs than ever before.
Kim Jong-un’s regime doesn’t care about this horrible drug epidemic at all
The North Korean Human Rights Committee, director of operations, Greg Scarlatoiu said the use and supply of crystal meth is not a concern for the Kim Jong-un regime. Even the regular use of drugs, such as crystal meth, is released with the idea that the regime will help to bring a serious sanction on the population.
Drug use seems to remain free unless it poses a danger to the regime
Greg Scarlatoiu “Drug use will continue to be used as legal unless it is a danger to Kim Jong-un’s regime. It will probably make the people of North Korea a more subservient and drugged community. As long as the state permits the use of drugs, the mental and physical disorders caused by the drugs will become increasingly common among the public.” said. The North Korean regime is firmly opposed to claims that crystal meth has been produced and consumed in the country. In 2013, according to a state-owned news agency in North Korea, ”The illegal use, trade and production of drugs in the country is not done at all.’
According to the Nautilus Institute’s report, the North Korean regime has been supporting the production and trade of illegal drugs directly or indirectly since the 1970s
According to the report published by the Nautilus Institute in 2003, the North Korean regime has been interested in the supply, trade, production and logistics of illegal drugs for almost half a century. These efforts increased in the 1990s, and as the country’s economic situation worsened, heroin production and use were replaced by cheaper drugs, such as crystal meth.
