Tabuk City Acts Against Illegal Drugs
April 4, 2015
TABUK CITY, Kalinga – City Mayor Ferdinand B. Tubban rallied the various sectors to join hands with authorities in the fight against illegal drugs in the city.
“We’ve seen and heard how drug abuse could cause further problems among families, in the schools and in the entire community. “ Let us all work together to stop drug abuse in our place before bigger problems related to it would come to our city, Tubban stressed during the anti-illegal drugs summit last week.
Other speakers cited the health hazards and serious social ills that come together with drug abuse, aside from its implications on peace and order.
An agreement reached during the summit is to strengthen police-community watch down to the barangays.
The top barangays in Tabuk on the police illegal drugs watch are namely Bulanao, Calanan, Casigayan, Laya and Nambaran.
Let us guard own homes, communities and barangays and immediately report to authorities anyone involved in the illegal activity, summit leaders said.
The summit led by the City and Barangay Anti-drug Abuse Councils carried the theme, “A message of hope – drug use disorders are preventable and treatable.” (JDP/LL-PIA CAR,Kalinga
