Tinglayan, Kalinga seeks funding for farm-to-market roads, livelihood projects to counter marijuana


Tinglayan, Kalinga – The proposal for the construction of farm-to-market roads and livelihood projects to counter marijuana cultivation in Tinglayan has already been submitted to the Dangerous Drugs Board for possible funding.


This was informed by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency – Cordillera Regional Director Gil Cesario Castro during the dialogue to find a lasting solution for the marijuana problem in the municipality on October 20 at the Open Gym in Poblacion, Tinglayan.


Castro recalled that their office received the proposals prepared by the Tinglayan Local Government Unit in July this year. The documents contained farm-to-market road projects in areas with marijuana plantation sites.

A series of communications then transpired between Castro and Mayor Sacrament Gumilab which expounded the proposal to include alternative livelihood projects.


The proposal was then forwarded by Castro to the Dangerous Drugs Board(DDB), a government agency tasked to create policies for dealing with illegal drugs in the country to fund projects through the Philippine Anti-Illegal Drugs Strategy.


Castro informed that the matter will be deliberated.


“To update, I committed an hourly update to your honorable mayor nu anya iti mapaspasamak iti request yu, tapnu haan nga mapukpukaw ti transmittal na,” he said.

Meeting the locals through the dialogue and consultation meeting on October 20, Castro said that the government will have more ideas on how to further help the community.


“Ito ang nagiging resulta kapag ang inyong congressman, ang inyong mayor, ang inyong pulis at regional line agencies are working together to serve the better public and to respond to the basic problem of the society,” he noted.
