Masantol town in Pampanga province remains free of illegal drugs, according to Masantol Mayor Danilo Guintu.

“Simula po nung 2017, ngayon 2021 na, tuluy-tuloy po ang programa natin laban sa iligal na droga,” he said in a Sun Star Pampanga report.

“Ang LGU po nagbibigay ng pondo sa kapulisan dahil hindi naman magiging successful ang kahit anong programa kung walang pondo. Malaking bagay ang partnership ng kapulisan at gobyerno,” Guintu said.

Masantol has been declared a drug-free town by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency since August 2017.

“Dini-discuss din namin sa kanila ang mga programa ng gobyerno kung saan pwede silang makinabang katulad ng livelihood and scholarship programs,” the mayor said.

“Ang gusto namin magkaroon sila ng normal na buhay para hindi nila maisipan na gumamit o ma-involve sa iligal droga,” Guintu said.
