Isabela First District Representative Antonio “Tonypet” Albano is pushing to legalize and regulate the use of medical cannabis or marijuana in the Philippines.
On Monday, August 5, the politiko met with stakeholders of his House Bill Number 279 or the Medical Cannabis Compassionate ACt.
“We aim to legalize the MEDICINAL value of cannabis for the suffering, dire, poor, and very sick patients… especially the kids who are suffering immensely. We do NOT intend to pass this for recreational use and abuse,” said Albano.
“May God give us the maturity to look into our bleeding hearts for those who need this medicine and melt those who are opposing it. God bless us all. God bless the Philippines!” he added.
