President Rody Duterte’s war on drugs campaign has been fully implemented by the Philippine National Police, primarily by Chief Ronald ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa.

It is clear in the news everyday that they’re doing a great job at finding drug pushers and making drug users to surrender. They’ve also found different drug paraphernalia, substances, and other drug-related stuff in their buy-bust operations.

All of their efforts are commendable but with their recent drug bust operation in Cordillera, people aren’t in an all-time high with what the PNP did.

The PNP as led by Chief Bato were able to round up marijuana plants particularly in Benguet. They gathered the plants and made around 5-6 huge piles in an open field with many people watching.

What irked many netizens was their method of eliminating these drugs. The PNP burned these all at the same time.

We all know that when you burn marijuana and inhale the smoke, you get high. Once you get high and get tested for drugs, it will result as positive.
