Campaign vs illegal drugs can be strengthened thru ASEAN
by Carlito C. Dar and J. Esmele

The Philippine’s campaign against illegal drugs can be r strengthened and expanded to the Southeast Asia region through closer cooperation among the Association of South East Asian Nation (ASEAN) member-nations.

Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Cordillera Information Officer Joseph Calulut said that one of the three pillars of ASEAN is the Political-Security Community that aims to ensure that member-states live at peace with one another. 

Towards fostering peace and stability in the ASEAN region, one identified means is to strengthen cooperation in the campaign against illegal drugs given the threats from drug abuse and drug trafficking of the security and stability of the nations.

Calulut, during the Philippine Information Agency-led forum on ASEAN, said that cooperation with ASEAN member-nations through sharing of information can strengthen the campaign against illegal drug suppliers and personalities within the region.

Along with the campaign against drug supply/suppliers, cutting   off the local demand through the present programs of the government is equally important in the war against illegal drugs, Calulut added.  

PDEA, being part of the security sector, will continue to work with its mandate on suppression of illegal drugs in the country, he said.

Calulut said that the anti-drug campaign in the Cordillera is now focused on clearing the 19 drug- affected barangays in Baguio City and three barangays in Benguet based on PDEA-CAR’s list.

The Police Regional Office-Cordillera already declared the provinces of Abra, Apayao, Ifugao, Kalinga, and Mountain Province as illegal-drugs free provinces.
