AN OPEN LETTER TO TEDDYBOY LOCSIN

DEAR Teddyboy Locsin,

Nabasa ko po ang pambabastos nyo kay VP Leni. Grabe naman po kayo. Hindi nyo na po sya ginalang. May mga point lang po ako na kailangan iraise.

 1. First, VP Leni never mentioned yung “decriminalization”. May transcript po ako ng open forum. Eto po. To follow na lang ang video po kasi iisplice ko pa po. Medyo mahaba eh. Baka mabored kayo, mukhang sanay kayo sa click bait news eh.

 2. Second kung sakali yun po ang interpretation ng media sa sinabi nya, then let’s define the term “decriminalization “.

Ayun po sa legal dictionary ang isang meaning po nito ay:

  • is the lessening of criminal penalties in relation to certain acts, perhaps retroactively, though perhaps regulated permits or fines might still apply.

Kayo po you twisted the word to legalization na iba po ang meaning. Eto po ang meaning oh.

“Legalization” on the other hand removes all or most legal detriments from a previously illegal act.

Di ba po, magkaiba? Alam ko matalino kayo, lawyer kayo eh. Hindi naman kayo si Mocha na mahilig mag imbento ng kwento.

 3. Ang totoo po, VP Leni suggested to Duterte to study what Portugal did. Bakit Portugal? Kasi po instead na pinapatay nila ang mga addict doon gaya ng ginagawa ni Duterte, tinutulungan po nilang magbago.

“If someone is found in the possession of less than a 10-day supply of anything from marijuana to heroin, he or she is sent to a three-person Commission for the Dissuasion of Drug Addiction, typically made up of a lawyer, a doctor and a social worker. The commission recommends treatment or a minor fine; otherwise, the person is sent off without any penalty. A vast majority of the time, there is no penalty.

Fourteen years after decriminalization, Portugal has not been run into the ground by a nation of drug addicts. In fact, by many measures, it’s doing far better than it was before.”

At ang effect niya po sa Portugal ay malaki.

“Drug use has declined overall among the 15- to 24-year-old population, those most at risk of initiating drug use.”

“There has also been a decline in the percentage of the population who have ever used a drug and then continue to do so.”

“Drug-induced deaths have decreased steeply.”

“HIV infection rates among injecting drug users have been reduced at a steady pace, and has become a more manageable ”

And ang PINAKA IMPORTANTE :

“A widely cited study published in 2010 in the British Journal of Criminology found that after decriminalization, Portugal saw a decrease in imprisonment on drug-related charges alongside a surge in visits to health clinics that deal with addiction and disease.”

Sir Teddyboy, di ba maganda naman po ang suggestion ni VP Leni?

Sir, hindi po kayo si Mocha, wag po kayo mambalahura ng tao. Edukado po kayo, wag kayong mambastos.

Sinabihan nyo si VP Leni ng idiot, ano ba ang mas idiot yung taong naghahanap ng alternatibong solution sa mga patayan na nangyayari, or kayo po na umaayon lamang sa sinasabi ng pangulo kahit alam nyong mali?

Wag BALAHURA Sir Teddyboy, hindi po kayo si Mocha.
