Kim Jong Un Cracks Down on Smoking

North Korea is trying to crack down on its massive smoking problem. The country has one of the world’s highest lung-cancer rates and about half of its male population smokes. Kim Jong Un’s government has enlisted Judith Mackey, a prominent anti-tobacco campaigner, to explore options to lower the number of smokers in the country. Kim himself, of course, is an avid smoker.
