CEBU, Philippines — Buhay Partylist Representative Lito Atienza, Jr. and Dr. Rene Josef C. Bullecer, director of Human Life International Country, are against the legalization of medicinal marijuana in the Philippines. They both claim that it does not show any conclusive study that proves that it can be used for medicinal purposes. “I’m telling you, marijuana destroys the person’s mindset. Marijuana affects the thinking of the user. Marijuana is destructive. Marijuana is bad,” Atienza said.
