Dela Rosa wants decriminalization of illegal drug use

  • Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa wants to decriminalize illegal drug use in the country.

    Dela Rosa, then police chief known for leading the war on drugs, said that he authored a measure that seeks to decriminalize illegal drug use.

    “Gusto ko nga dahil kasagsagan ng ating war on drugs, nakita natin na punong-puno na ang ating kulungan dahil diyan sa mga drug offenses,” he said on GMA’s Unang Hirit on Thursday when asked if he favors such decriminalization.

    (I want to decriminalize it because, at the height of the war on drugs, we saw that prisons got congested because of drug offenses.)
