Drug abuse has been a perennial problem for the country. It has gotten over time and is perhaps never going to be resolved despite the efforts of the government to eradicate drug abuse. What are the ill-effects of drug abuse in the Philippines?
Health - drug abusers are prone to diseases transmitted via needles such as HIV. Anti-retroviral drugs are provided free by the government. If there are more drug addicts this means that ultimately more spending on health care will have to be shouldred by the government when these expenses could have gone to better use.
Socio-cultural - the culture of drugs is frightening. You can see it being portratyed in movies and music, which further promotes the use of drugs.
Legal - because drug addicts still have human rights, they are entitled to a lawyer and fair trial. Instead of focusing legal minds on bigger issues, they need to dedicate a portion of their time defending drug addicts.
Economy - the economic implications are endless. Because of drug addiction, there are areas where businessmen rather not go because of the presence of many addicted people. This hampers business growth which eventually has a negative effect on the economy. Losses as well because of robbery from drug addicts are big.
