Manila Mayor Isko Moreno

Isko eyes ban on sale of solvents

account_balanceManila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno plans to prohibit the sale of addictive solvents to help address the addiction of minors who sniff toluene-laden contact cement as a cheap alternative to get high and alleviate their hunger.

This, after he apprehended several boys sniffing the addictive chemical during a midnight roaming in Manila.

During his roaming, Moreno rescued children who are using a solvent in public place. One minor was even spotted consuming the substance near a police outpost.

Moreno said he already directed the police to know the sources of the solvent in Manila.

“We are going after any store, whether it is a medical store or hardware store. It doesn’t matter to us,” he said.

“Nagbenta kayo ng solvent. Selling those, you will be treated as dealers or pushers,” Moreno warned.

Solvents have been declared by the government as a dangerous substance in 2009, and are prohibited from being sold over the counter unless they contain mustard oil, a sniffing deterrent.
