- Kapuso actor Epy Quizon admitted he was once a drug user
- The 'Oh My Mama' actor voluntarily took a drug test at PNP headquarters and met briefly with its chief Bato Dela Rosa
- Cesar Montano accompanied him and shared on social media of their meeting
Epy Quizon has taken the initiative to take a drug test at the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters, proving that he is indeed clear of illegal substances.
Previously, he revealed that he was once a user but had already quit since he does not have an 'addictive personality'. It was during this revelation that he made a controversy with his statement that pushers should be jailed instead of users.
The administration's campaign against drugs has focused on the entertainment industry, as more celebrities are undergoing tests to prove that they are drug-free.
On October 28, Friday, Epy was accompanied his friend and fellow actor Cesar Montano who documented their meeting with PNP chief Ronald 'Bato' Dela Rosa.
The actor/director posted photos of Epy and Bato's meeting, as well as a short clip of why Epy voluntarily took the drug test.
"Ang tunay po, matagal na po siya tumigil but gusto lang niya linisin sa isipin sa lahat ng tao lalo na sa kanyang close na mga kaibigan at mga close na kamag-anak na clean na siya. Matagal na po," Cesar said in his latest Facebook Live video.
(The truth is, he [Epy] has stopped using drugs but he wants to make it clear to people's minds, most especially to his close friends and family, that he is clean. It has been a long time.)
When the camera panned on the 'Heneral Luna' actor, he jokingly called out others to give up just like him.
Cesar not only posted photos of him and Epy with Bato, but also selfies with the PNP chief who stayed put on his desk.
Aside from Epy, other celebrities followed suit such as Joel Torre and Mylene Dizon.
Prior to these three, Kapamilya host Luis Manzano already had himself tested at the PNP headquarters, which had a negative result.
Although more actors are getting themselves tested for drug use, it is still better that they take the test at PNP's headquarters.
