No more big illegal drug labs in PH under Duterte admin – PDEA


A big development in the sector where we want to see a drug-free Philippines.

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) recently announced that the current supply of illegal drugs in the country are from outside the Philippines as there are no more are no longer huge drug laboratories in the country.

PDEA recently confiscated and led the biggest destruction of confiscated illegal drugs worth PHP13 billion in Trece Martires City, Cavite.

“Actually, we have not monitored any big drug laboratory in the country right now. The drug supply in the country is coming from outside and we are working with the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Bureau of Customs to put a stop to this,” PDEA Director General Wilkins Villanueva told mediamen.

The PDEA chief added that they are also addressing the “demand side” of illegal drugs problem in the country by clearing barangays of illegal drugs.

“While we are doing it, we provide corresponding action on the demand side kasi parati kong pinipilit kasi, kung walang (because I always insist that if there is no) demand, definitely, di na magpapapasok ‘yan kasi di na siya (they will no longer transport because it is no longer) profitable,” Villanueva said.

The latest destruction is the biggest in terms of volume in the history of PDEA under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

The destruction of the dangerous drugs is in compliance custody and disposition of seized dangerous drugs required in Section 21, with the guidelines set on the Article II of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, and Dangerous Drugs Board Regulation No. 1, Series of 2002.

“We want to assure the public that PDEA, as the lead agency in the national anti-drug campaign, adheres to transparency, gives credence to accountability that strictly follow the existing laws and rules, to dispel the public notion that these illicit items are being reused, recycled or sold back in the streets. That scenario will never happen,” Villanueva pointed out.
