Mayor Kim Lope Asis admitted in front of everyone who gathered at the city gymnasium on Monday that he was once a ‘drug user’ in his youth days.
Speaking before more than 1,000 confessed drug peddlers and users who voluntarily surrendered to the police, Lope said that he was sent to a drug rehabilitation center several times because of his addiction in drugs.
However, Mayor Asis said he managed to change his life because “I did not see any good thing that shabu could bring to our lives,” he said.
But, He clarified that he is not protecting any drug lords or sell any illegal drugs, “I can assure you, 100 percent, I’m not into it and I’m confident that I would not be part of the 23 mayors whom President Duterte had hinted to be involved in illegal drugs, he said.
