Why good teachers get busted for drugs

According to the Busan Ilbo, Maeil Gyeongje and NoCut News (no surprise with that last one), on the 20th, police revealed that a week earlier they'd arrested R, a 26 year old American middle school teacher, for ordering 28 grams of JWH-018 ("skunk") over the internet and having it mailed to himself. This came after he ordered a gram in May to try. Police, as always, suspect other teachers may be involved and are expanding the investigation. NoCut News (of course!) has this quote:
A Busan Office of Education representative said that "R had absolutely no criminal record, but after coming to Korea he encountered drugs while socializing with other native speaking teachers."
Well, you know what they say: "Native-speaking teachers corrupt absolutely."

Better stay away from the Korean clubs kids while we're at it, or we'll all get duped into trying pilopone(sp?), Korea's number one drug of choice.

I'll bet that part about "never did it before but got turned on by others" came from the arrestee himself looking for mitigating circumstances and got put in his handwritten description of the incident, not the Pusan Office of Education.

JWH-018 is not 'skunk' but 'Spice', one of these 'legal highs' that has unfortunately become illegal in quite a few countries now. Korea only made it illegal last year, but it remains legal in most US states.
