28 8 68

SOUTH KOREAN citizens living in Canada have been warned against smoking marijuana as they could face criminal charges when they return to their home country.

The North American country recently made headlines for legalising recreational use of marijuana recently, but South Korean police have not given its citizens the green light to indulge in the drug, treating it as a serious offence.

According to the Korea Times, Yoon Se-jin, head of the Narcotics Crime Investigation Division at Gyeonggi Nambu Provincial Police Agency, said South Korean smokers could face up to five years in prison, even if they consumed the organic drug abroad.
