Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto wants students to know the evils of drug use while they are young.

Sotto led on Friday the kick off of the city government’s anti-drugs campus tour in San Joaquin Elementary School.

A photo shared by the mayor on his Facebook page showed him posing with students and local officials in the campaign against illegal drugs.

Sotto explained that the fight against illegal drugs involves diminishing both the supply and demand.

“Dalawang bahagi ang laban kontra droga. yung unang bahagi, ang paghabol sa supply-side (kagaya ng pushers), madalas nating napaguusapan. Pero kasing importante rin nito ang ikalawang bahagi, ang pagbawas sa demand,” he said.

Sotto said the campus tour will involve teaching students the “eight ways to say no to drugs.”

The city government has partnered with the Philippine National Police, Dangerous Drugs Board and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency for the campus tour.
