- Several showbiz personalities working for the GMA Network have stated that they approve of the plan to make celebrities undergo random drug testing

- Both Heart Evangelista and Ryza Cenon also commented that the random drug check is for the best of everyone in showbiz
Several GMA Kapuso stars have expressed their support for the call to have showbiz personalities undergo a random drug testing to check if they are using any kind of illegal drugs or not.
Actress-host-model Solenn Heussaff, who has already tested negative for illegal drugs, said that she supports the random drug check but implied that she would not give her opinion in other matters regarding President Rodrigo Duterte’s bloody campaign against the illegal drug trade.
“I’m in full support of the random drug test and the rest I don’t want to give my opinion,” Solenn said.

The model added that people should not suspect her of using illegal drugs because she is just always at home painting.
Actress Heart Evangelista, the wife of Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, said that she is worried about the effects and consequences of releasing the names of the alleged drug users and pushers in showbiz but explained that she supports the random drug testing.
“You don’t know what the effect would be sa kanila kasi parang (for them) to put their name out, ganyan (like that). But if it is for the best, then it’s for the best, diba (right)? I mean, maybe, it’s their wake-up call,” the GMA actress said.
Kapuso star Martin del Rosario also spoke about the issue, pointing out that he is okay with the plan for random drug testing as long as the authorities would carefully verify the tests and the names first.
Another Kapuso celebrity, Ryza Cenon, commented that celebrities who are innocent should have nothing to fear about the plan for a random drug check.
“Wala naman dapat ikatakot kasi para rin naman sa ating lahat yun eh,” she said.
(There is nothing to be afraid of because that is for the good of everyone.)
The police have already announced that their war against illegal drugs would extend to the showbiz world after several celebrities were tagged as drug users and pushers in recent months.
