Various rumors have been going around about North Korea being a paradise for marijuana lovers. It is hard to check if this is really true as there is very little information about what’s really going on in North Korea.

Sources from the Swedish embassy in North Korea claim that this is false and that cannabis is illegal in North Korea and any kind of possession will be punished.

We are not aware of any possible law changes in the (near) future in North Korea regarding medical and/or recreational cannabis.
