Illegal drugs in South Korea trafficked from China

in Substance Abuse

In 2010, South Korean authorities seized 8,200 grams of foreign-produced methamphetamine within the country. Of that total, around 57 percent of the illicit drugs originated from China. Law enforcement believe that a large portion of the drugs were trafficked through North Korea on its way towards South Korea.
