QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Philippines Vice President Leni Robredo’s much-ballyhooed report on her two-week stint as Co-chair of the Inter-agency Committee on Anti-illegal Drugs (ICAD) finally was unveiled yesterday.
While none of Robredo’s ‘findings’ and recommendations was earth-shattering, one of her revelations shocked many Filipinos. It even came with a bar graph.
Robredo claimed that only less than 1% of the estimated supply of shabu in the country had been seized in government law enforcement operations.
Asked by reporters who swarmed the Office of the Vice President at the Boracay Mansion in Quezon City for a delectable merienda (snack) treat what the signficance was of the number she divulged, Robredo said:
”It means that 99% of the shabu supply had already been consumed! In other words, there is no longer an illegal drug problem in the country. Duterte’s war on drugs can be stopped ASAP.”
