President Duterte’s relentless campaign on illegal drugs has been the first of its kind in the Philippines. In his first speech at the PSG Grandstand, he mentioned that according to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency’s records, there were three million drug addicts in the country as of two to three years ago.
No one will be spared in our President’s campaign against illegal drugs, not even public officials. Hence, the PSG personnel underwent mandatory drug testing from August 2 to September 15, 2016.
One of the personnel from an OPCON unit who tested positive was discharged from the service. A second test was even conducted on the said person, which yielded the same result.
