Lacson to PDEA, DDB: Refocus your efforts vs โ€˜big fishโ€™

With law enforcers proving themselves capable of going after street peddlers, it is high time for the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and Dangerous Drugs Board to go after the so-called big fish.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this on Tuesday as he cited the need for stricter coordination at the upper levels against the entry of illegal drugs into the country.

โ€œYou have to refocus because the police are now capable of going after street peddlers. You have to concentrate on those at the higher levels,โ€ he said at the Senate hearing on the budgets of the two agencies for 2019.
