Bantayan natin! Drug prevention starts in family – Bato
Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa is asking Filipinos to support the war on drugs by guarding their family members from the menace.
Dela Rosa, a former police chief, said the public could help prevent any family member from becoming a drug addict.
If the demand for illegal drugs slows down, he said the country would have an “oversupply” of the illegal substance.
“Simple lang ang pakiusap ko sa inyo, lahat ng Pilipino, bantayan natin ang ating lahat ng mga mahal sa buhay na hindi gagamit ng droga,” he said.
“Kung lahat tayo magbabantay, malaking tiyansa magiging zero ang demand. Eh kapag zero ang demand kahit na babahain tayo ng shabu galing sa China araw-araw, mag-oversupply ang shabu sa Pilipinas, kung walang demand, walang gagamit, wala ang problema ng droga sa Pilipinas,”he said.
