In a sign that the government is winning the war on illegal drugs, Makati mayor Abby Binay on Monday announced that five more barangays have been declared “drug cleared” by the Regional Oversight Committee on Barangay Drug-Clearing.

The barangays which were declared clear of illegal drugs were: Bel-Air, Dasmariañas, Sta. Cruz, Pinagkaisahan, and PostProper Southside.

Binay praised the chiefs of the drug-cleared barangays, as well as the local police, Makati Anti-Drug Abuse Council (MADAC), and Department of the Interior and Local Government for working together to fight illegal drugs.

She urged stakeholders to continue helping one another to help the government stamp out the illegal drug trade.

For a barangay to be declared drug-cleared, it must not have, among others, supply of illegal drugs, drug trade, a secret warehouse where illegal drugs could be made, as well as drug pushers and users.
