Duterte can’t just rely on cops to end drugs – Mayor Osmeña

MANILA, Philippines – Law enforcement alone will not end the drug problem in the country, said Cebu City Mayor Tomas “Tommy” Osmeña, stressing the need to bring drug users “back to mainstream society.”
“It’s a very complicated issue, because handling drugs is not only police action. It can be socioeconomic action – the issue of livelihood. These are the things that help promote drugs or can reduce drugs,” Osmeña said in a Rappler Talk interview on Friday, August 11.
The Duterte administration said around 1.4 million drug surrenderers and suspects are eligible for rehabilitation, but its frontline agencies have treated only around 160,000 of them.
