Listening to K-hip hop there are obvious references to smoking weed. Are there underground dispensaries stores and stuff or more like people dealing on the side(similar to how it was in the States before legalization)?
What are most citizens opinion on it and is it basically decriminalized like tattoos are there?
There are zero stores selling weed as it is absolutely illegal and they would get thrown into jail. There is a growing black market I’ve heard, and I think social media chatrooms and/or the Darknet is how people sell and buy drugs.
In regards to the perception of drugs by the general public, they are not viewed similar to tattoos at all. Many young people have tattoos these days, it’s considered very fashionable. Drugs on the other hand, are seen as a criminal activity and you’ll be considered as an extremely low-level person if you do drugs. And people view all types of drugs with the same level of disdain. In Koreans’ eyes: weed, meth, heroin are just as bad as each other, simply because that’s what we’ve been told for decades. Here is an article that explains further on this issue.
