North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), is a country in East Asia, in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula. North Korea shares a land border with China to the north and South Korea to the south.
Although several drugs are illegal in North Korea, it is unclear if cannabis is one of them, and it is not clear how cannabis use is prosecuted. A popular herb-tobacco mixture called "ipdambae" may look similar to cannabis, which has led to the misconception of wide cannabis use.
