I thought for a second he was caught being a sex pest but weed? That's it? They're still making such a big deal about this?

Wonder who he bought it from.

I know, but that doesn't mean tons of people still don't do it and it's strange who they choose to single out with this. Drugs are illegal most everywhere else but there are very few countries where someone smoking a little bit of weed at home is turned into a news case when somewhere else they'd have to be sitting on a throne made out of heroin to get the same result

I admit i have, but its also legal where i live.

Also, which kpop celeb would you like to roll a blunt with? Im picking Sulli, Krystal, T.O.Pand BTS (minus Jin and J Hope because i don't think they would be here for it).

On one hand, Korea is a sovereign nation and has the right to make weed illegal. On the other hand, it's stupid how they group all drugs together as being all equally horrible, especially when it's just weed we're talking about and they have such a huge drinking problem as a society over there.

Countries with large drinking cultures always freak me out a bit because it can mess you up so much but there's also 0 incentive to stop for people, or worse they're pressured into participating.

Agreed on how stupid it is that they don't distinguish between hard and soft drugs though, I wonder if they go after weed so much because it's more easily available? But then Korea's #1 drug is meth which is so much worse!
