“Nakakalungkot na pati ang isang minor de edad na dapat ay nag-aaral ay mahuhuling gumagamit ng iligal na droga. Patunay lang ito na talagang laganap na ang paggamit at pagbebenta nito sa Kamaynilaan.” PMGEN DANAO said
He added “Kung kaya’t ako po ay nananawagan sa ating mga kababayan na huwag matakot na magsumbong sa pinakamalapit na istasyon ng pulis kung mayroon silang nalalaman kaugnay sa pagbebenta at paggamit ng iligal na droga upang mahuli at kung may kabataan mang sagkot ay ating matulungan at hindi tuluyang maligaw ng landas.”###
