First Drugs, then currency, now Marlboros

Wow, I would never have thought of counterfeiting cigarettes. Those in the North have, and seem to be making a tidy sum doing it.
North Korea is the world’s leading counterfeiter of brand-name cigarettes, circulating more than 2 billion packs a year, the Wall Street Journal has reported.

Wow, 2 billion packs, that's a "B" not an "M". Amazing.
