MANILA, Philippines – Jennifer (not her real name) revealed that while she was with the illegal drugs trade there are law enforcers and politicians who are either users or protectors of the prohibited drugs. But she did not identify them even as she swears policemen and political leaders are into it. In Tagbilaran city there are leaders who are into illegal drugs, she said. “Gikan sa kapitan hangtud sa kagawad” of the barangay. Asked does she know them, “Di lang ko mention kay lisod na,” she added.
Asked on politician’s participation in illegal drugs, she said, “Sila’y nag-control. Dugay ra man na.” She did not elaborate, however.Other professional include lawyers, doctors, med-rep, teachers, police officers, and others who are users or otherwise involved in drugs. They even met during pot session but they used “aliases” apparently to cover their identity, she said.
If she doesn’t have money how to secure drugs for her own consumption, she said that “siyempre babaye god gamiton ang diskarte nimo pagka-babaye.” But after the pot session, one should be smart enough to get exit and fled. Once you’re into drugs, “ma-bright man god ka,” she said. But “money is root of all evil,” she added.
She hinted of giving sexual favor for money, saying that “puslan man nga moduwa ka anang dapita, adto na lang sa dako nga tawo nga maduolan. Bahala na lang” just to make money for her craving of the drugs.
Tricks of shabu transshipment
“Ako usahay, nakabiyahe na man god ko,” she said. She explained that illegal drugs trade use all tricks just to get it to the buyers/users.
Once such occasion was that the contraband (shabu) was placed inside the cigarette pack that she herself is unaware of and undetected. But the receiver is smart enough that he knows shabu has been hidden in cigarette pack.
Another instance was when she was from Cebu. The shabu supply was placed inside her milk in pack undetected while pretending she sips on it. She said authorities would not suspect of the milk she’s sipping since it’s food.
Another trick to hide shabu is through soap by cutting the soap in half and make a space of the soap enough for shabu to put inside and wrap it again. The contraband in soap looks the same in form and shape.
Drugs breed crimes
Jennifer believes that the killing in the city, particularly, is a result of the drugs abuse. Not only killing but also carnapping and trafficking, she said. Again, she did not elucidate further.
She said that a lot of youth are into illegal drugs use. They even gather in a restaurant near the house of prayer with guns. And she said that they’re like that (showy) because they’re protected.
She said she called it quits. But she regrets of what she’s done with drugs considering she already has three children.
She said she decided to stop using drugs for the future of her children. And she considers that family has something to do with doing away with drugs.
She said that she’s very grateful she’s given chance to work with Beauche International and reform herself into a productive citizen. This she prayed to God for this second chance to change for the better.
Jennifer pins high hopes and looks forward for a bright future in working hard with Beauche International in the name of her family and children.
