BUTTERWORTH: Police have dismissed a news portal report yesterday which claimed that policemen are protecting drug pushers who are operating openly in Kampung Ujung Batu here.

How many pushers, addicts are there? The PNP Directorate for Operations collates the latest drug war statistics: At least 6,600 pushers and users were killed in shootouts with police from July 1, 2016 to May 31, 2019. Another 240,565 were arrested and are now crammed to overcapacity in jails. Plus, 1,283,409 were home-visited by cops and warned to desist or else. The figures do not include those killed by vigilantes and rival narco-gangs. Or, those who have been rehabbed or still in clinic. The persistent finding though is that nearly all pushers are users who crave to sustain their vice. And their drug of choice is shabu (meth). So how many more of them remain out there? Obviously lots more, going by frequent interdiction of shabu by the tons, worth billions of pesos, at seaports and secret factories. Supply reflects demand; the risk of trafficking in huge volumes, for huge profits, indicates huge demand. A ton of shabu equals a million one-gram sachets, … [Read more...] about How many pushers, addicts are there?
