Senator Panfilo Lacson has warned that insatiable greed starts with simple graft and that there is no detox for money addiction.

Lacson made the comment after President Duterte has allowed policemen to go into small town lottery operations, video karera activities and other businesses as well as accept gifts from the public out of gratitude for their service.

Despite the government rules against accepting gifts in the course of work, Duterte believed that gift giving to policemen is not considered a form of bribery.

“Mr President, insatiable greed starts with simple, petty graft. It could be more addicting than drugs,” Lacson tweeted.

“There is no detox, nor is there rehab facility available for addiction to money,” he said.
