North Korean Workers Given ‘Crystal Meth’ to Speed Up Skyscraper Project

In spite of sanctions placed on North Korea by the international community over nuclear weapon tests, leader Kim Jong-Un approved the building project earlier this year. He has reportedly placed such intense pressure on the workers to finish it quickly that project managers are now openly handing out stimulants.


The methamphetamine is reportedly inhaled through the nose, increasing user energy for up to 12 hours.


Consistent use of the drug causes severe physical and psychological trauma, including delusions, paranoia, and hallucinations. Studies show an increased tendency toward suicide or homicide. With long term use, effects include rapid aging, and irreversible damage to blood vessels, including in the heart and brain.


Human rights organizations accuse the nation of using slave labor and urge the United Nations to step in.
