An increasing number of drug addicts in the North Korea-China border regions shows that drug use is spreading in North Korea.
According to the German daily newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung, the drug most people are addicted to is amphetamine. Until last year, North Korea produced amphetamine on a national level. However, as production has been stopped, corrupt commissioned officers have secretly exported it to China. Consumption of this drug in North Korea has been widespread since 2005. In addition, high-end restaurants in North Korea offer amphetamine as dessert or instead of coffee, Süddeutsche Zeitung added.
