Panelo on school drug tests: Sounds like a plan!
Presidential Spokesperson, Atty. Salvador Panelo is for the drug testing of children and minors. The abogado agreed to the idea that Grade 4 students and above be subjected to mandatory drug testing.

Panelo said that this is a good thing for the parents since they will already find out if their kid is addicted or being used by the drug industry. The abogado also cited PDEA’s survey that claimed 51% of parents agreed to the said proposal.
The abogado even noted that he welcomes the idea as a parent himself. He wrote, “As a parent, I will want it because we will never know how our children in schools will be influenced or used by persons outside the family.”
I’m sure there’s a law being violated here somewhere!
