North Korean Cultivation and production of opium poppies has been booming as a way for Little Kim to supplement the income for his battered state. The United States and other world players have been pounding N Korea with economic sanctions for decades.

 

Sanctions against North Korea – Wikipedia

Resolution 1718 in 2006 demanded that North Korea cease nuclear testing and prohibited the export to North Korea of some military supplies and luxury goods. A Sanctions Committee is established, supported by a Panel of Experts that issue annual reports.

 

In order to continue funding his nuke program and various other projects as well as his weakened government, naturally he turned to the drug trade. North Korean authorities estimated that NK devoted 4,200 to 7,000 Hectares of land to the cultivation of opium poppy, based on these estimates that would produce 3 to 4.5 metric tons for heroin production.  Please see the links below for more on this topic, & ask yourself this question, Is this going to be the next afghan heroin bangger? And is this why we have a renewed interest in the Korean peninsula?
