OVER 600 officers and men of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency were subjected to a surprise drug test last Monday at the PDEA national headquarters in Quezon City and the good news is that none of them tested positive for substance abuse.

PDEA Director General Isidro S. Lapeña led the drug testing in which key PDEA officers, administrative/technical personnel and drug enforcement officers were required to submit their urine specimen after a long weekend break.
   
The drug tests were administered by the PDEA Laboratory Service, headed by Director Belen Banog, after the regular Monday flag-raising ceremony. The drug test all yielded negative results for the presence of illegal drugs, the PDEA chair said.
