As the Duterte administration's war on drugs continues, more and more detractors are airing their side.

The latest is activist priest Robert Reyes, this Monday, he said that the administration's war on drugs is immoral and that the priests will never join the police's anti-drug operations.
“Our conscience tells us not to be part of an operation we have determined to be immoral. The war on drugs is immoral,”
He also said that drugs is not a crime, but a health issue that should not be solved by force.
“You do not solve a health issue with police force. Ang droga, hindi crime. That’s what you have to address first. He is sick and therefore, he needs medical attention,”
His statement was somehow connected to the announcement of Philippine National Police Chief Director Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa about the relaunching of Oplan Double Barrel Roladed where he said  that priests and local officials can join the police in conducting anti-drug operations.

Meanwhile, Senator Panfilo Lacson, during the Senate public order committee hearing on the recent deaths of minors said that cops do not operate users, only pushers.

Reyes argued that this was not the case as there were reports that some of those killed were sleeping and defenseless.
“Dami natutulog lang sa bahay, tapos binaril tapos lalagyan ng cardboard na pusher,”
Reyes also blamed Duterte for the impunity.
“Hindi lahat ng pulis ay pasaway pero kung babalikan yung mga salita ng Pangulo, sinasabi niya ‘go ahead, ako bahala.” Kaya may impunity,”
