Bato admits getting ‘high’ twice in college

Philippine National Police Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa admitted Oct. 9 that he has tried using marijuana when he was still a student at the Mindanao State University.

“I have tasted marijuana for two times when I was in college,” Dela Rosa told the press during the 116th Police Service Anniversary in La Trinidad, Benguet.

“The effect to me when I tried marijuana was having a feeling of (being) high, having red eyes and wanting to listen and sing folk songs due to its good vibes.”

He quickly warned the public of not taking the risk to do the same.

The illegal drug has been hotly contested, with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Food and Drug Administration’s joint advisory on the prohibition of sale or use of hempseed oil in 2015 and Congress’ persistent attempts to legalize marijuana for medical purposes.

According to House Bill No. 4477 or the “Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act,” the said drug can heal patients with debilitating illnesses such as cancer, epilepsy and acquired immune deficiency syndrome, among others.

Dela Rosa said the police is willing to adhere to Congress’ decision.

“I leave it to the Congress on how they will determine the use of medical marijuana but for us law enforcers, we will have to abide by what congress will formulate,” he said.
