One thing you might not know is Japan’s attitude towards illegal drugs. Oh man! How would you feel if you get a random check-up outside a bar to get your urine sample? They do it especially on tourist – the so-called “random screening”. Police will not even wink if you are positive. You get a charge and get imprisoned for decades.

Even samples of painkiller medicines, over-the-counter antibiotics, and other kinds can be considered as heroin and ecstasy.

Although you might get lucky if they don’t get you killed, instead, they’re going to put you into a “rehabilitation camp” for you to get treated. But a lot of locals say rehab camp is just euphemizing what is truly happening in there. It’s not a rehab but a forced labor camp.
