I'll keep trying my luck here, thank you very much.

That's the worst country in the world to get the Munchies.

I was going to cry for Dear Leader, but then I got high......
 
2013-01-20 04:17:51 PM
plenty of weed, nothing eat.

Pot, the "opiate" of the downtrodden masses. Rise up, and become capitalist, and you too can afford beer and steak! Viva la counter-revolution!

So true. What an enigmatic place.
 
2013-01-20 04:21:57 PM
Maybe we should reconsider this North Korea is bad thing.
 
2013-01-20 04:22:25 PM
Vice on Fark? What is going on?
 
2013-01-20 04:24:07 PM
There is lots of "tar" in weed. Writer is ill-informed.
 
2013-01-20 04:26:32 PM
That might explain the paranoia.

Maybe he means "black tar heroin"?

/I know; he doesn't.

If you believe on the libtards on Fark, weed has no negative side effects at all!

Done in one.

give me a few negative side effects then?

The reason NK weed is weak is they don't spray cancer-causing pesticides on it.
 
2013-01-20 04:36:49 PM
Meth is also a huge problem in the country.
 
2013-01-20 04:37:33 PM
They were trying to tell us. We just weren't listening....
 
2013-01-20 04:37:35 PM
i wonder where the author is from. they repeatedly refer to a wild growing plant as a drug.
 
2013-01-20 04:37:57 PM

poxic: That might explain the paranoia.


Can you imagine how belligerent they'd be if they weren't constantly high? Makes me shiver.
 
2013-01-20 04:39:52 PM
It would explain why Kim Jong Un has got to be a size 54 waist in a country where the mean waist size can't be more than half that.

FTA : In North Korea, you don't smoke just to get high and laugh at your own hand

They're too sophisticated for that.

Also FTA : NK NEWS receives regular reports from visitors returning from North Korea, who tell us of marijuana plants growing freely along the roadsides

Someone should make up a clever name for that sort of weed.
 
2013-01-20 04:55:53 PM
That's what I've been telling you guys!

From my experience. Insomnia, Paranoia, reduction in effective depth perception while driving (dude I thought I was going like 90 but I was going 30!", overeating, motivational problems (though this may be because I was a young twenty something), burning lungs, hacking cough, phlegm, red eyes, dry mouth.

I quit because of the insomnia and paranoia. I just couldn't sleep after getting high, even if I baked in the morning. For the paranoia, I just didn't want to be out in public. I couldn't smoke socially, even with people I knew. Did I say that weird? Was that weird how I said it? Do they think I'm weird? That person knows. That cop knows. I can feel my bones, I think I might be dying. etc. etc. etc. The paranoia didn't develop well into the late stages of my smoking career. Never got that when I started.

Pot has negative side effects. I only drink now. No bad side effects there!
 
2013-01-20 04:59:01 PM
So the country isn't poor, everyone's just too stoned to clean stuff up?
 
2013-01-20 05:03:27 PM
So, one upside versus about 1000 downsides?

tweek46420: give me a few negative side effects then?


COPD, emphysema, a risk of low testosterone, and a slightly higher risk for testicular cancer.
I'm a full legalization supporter, but even aspirin has downsides.. We just have to weight them against alchohol, tobacco, driving, etc - all rights that come with responsibilities and possible harms.

So? George Washington grew hemp, and the nation turned out OK.
 
2013-01-20 05:11:15 PM
Smoked.
Read the article. Forgot what it was about.
Time to drink.
 
2013-01-20 05:13:01 PM
Still wouldn't live there for a sack of weed as big as the country itself.

So what you're telling me, is the most oppressive country in the world has a more progressive attitude toward marijuana than we do.

We should probably, like, do something about that.

/the bombing begins in five minutes
 
2013-01-20 05:51:43 PM
How about that!
Now all you pot smokers can MOVE to North Korea, and leave the rest of us the
hell alone -;)
 
2013-01-20 05:57:33 PM
So, it does help the government; the peons stay peacefully stoned and easily controlled. I am surprised it's not legal in more states, then.
 
2013-01-20 06:09:06 PM
Kim Jung be Illin.'

Subby is free to move there and be imprisoned as a capitalist spy.
 
2013-01-20 06:55:22 PM
Interesting comments on that article have me going down the research hole. In the south pot smoking was common pastime until the military dictatorships present until 1987 banned it to encourage the masses to work harder, and also combat 'western influence'.
 
2013-01-20 06:56:19 PM
Wow, pot is legal there! I'd totally move to Best Korea, except for the rampant corruption, mass starvation, system of forced labor camps, and flagrant abuses of human rights.
 
2013-01-20 07:31:09 PM
NK is "conservative"? Wut? When did the epitome of progressive utopian society make a right hand turn?

Which pot smokers are that bothersome to you, exactly?

I'm wondering that as well. Please enlighten us, p51d007.

no wonder they're out of food.
 
2013-01-20 08:11:56 PM
Think how much power the US could wield if it were to fly over North Korea and drop little packages of: rolling papers, a zippo lighter, twinkies, doritos, a can of coke, and a picture of Uncle Sam smoking a blunt!

They're nothing but a bunch of grass eatin, flat taxin, pro lifin, gun totin, pot smokin conservatives over there.
 
2013-01-20 09:00:29 PM
I hear they have very little crime there, too.


/legalize

Really. You think Progressives sit around thinking, "sure, poor people are starving, but do you have any idea how far behind our ballistic missile research is?"

What a surprise. A Republican too dumb to know that conservative has other meanings than "right wing."

You don't have to SMOKE weed. People do that because it's more efficient, and pot is expensive because it's contraband. So cross lung problems off the last. If it were legal, I'd just as soon eat it.

When it became insanely obsessed with preserving their "pure and clean Korean blood". Read BR Myers book The Cleanest Race. They're not some leftist regime; they're a group of insane totalitarian racists.
