Kapangan Mayor Manny Fermin said he wants people to know the town for its tourist destinations and not marijuana.
The Benguet politiko said people would always bring up that Kapangan is known for marijuana cultivation when they meet him.
Fermin said he wants to change this reputation.
“When we meet people from other places, we want them to ask us about our tourist spots, and not inquire about marijuana,” he said.
“We want that when we introduce ourselves, the question people will ask is: ‘Kumusta ang Badi Falls?’ and not ask us, ‘Kumusta pala ang problema ninyo sa marijuana cultivation,’” Fermin added.
