You can be killed for smoking weed in these countries. So take a tolerance break when visiting.
The punishment for cannabis use and distribution in the United States is criticized for how harsh it has been for decades. However, there are countries where the punishment for getting caught with weed is far worse. For example, in South Korea, cannabis is treated the same as any other illicit drug and you can be imprisoned for having traces of marijuana in your system from before you came to the country. If you think that’s bad, did you know you can be killed for weed in these countries listed below?
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the drug laws are strict in China. But getting caught with a small amount of weed in China won’t result in your death.
However, getting caught vending a large quantity can result in the death penalty.
In fact, we’ve recently reported on China putting on public death sentences for drug traffickers as a part of their anti-drug campaign.
