Barbers now chairs House committee on dangerous drugs

Cong. Ace Barbers
SURIGAO CITY - After weeks of deliberation, Surigao del Norte 2nd district Representative Robert Ace S. Barbers is confirmed chairman of the House Committee on Dangerous Drugs for the 17th Congress. 

“I am humbled to be named Chairman of the Committee on Dangerous Drugs. We will prioritize legislation that will reflect the present administration’s all-out war against illegal drugs and commitment to rehabilitate drug users. I am ready to work with stakeholders to achieve into fruition the legislative agenda of our President,” Barbers said. 

He said the Committee on Dangerous Drugs has jurisdiction over matters directly and principally relating to illegal or prohibited drugs, controlled precursors and essential chemicals, the production, manufacture, use and trafficking thereof, as well as the rehabilitation and treatment of drug dependents. 

As such, the Committee will deliberate crucial bills related to the Duterte administration’s intensified war on drugs. Proposals on establishing additional treatment and rehabilitation centers in different regions, strengthening the mandate of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), and prescribing higher penalties for drug related crimes, top the priority list of the House Committee on Dangerous Drugs, Barbers added.
