The Municipal Anti-Drug Abuse Council (MADAC) awarded the Certificate of Drug-free Barangay to 20 unaffected barangays and 9 Drug-cleared barangays. The certificate was given by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency after the deliberation and declaration as drug-free barangays last 22 June 2021.

MAYOR SHARON ROSE G. ESCOTO calls on to the barangays to not be complacent and maintain the drug-free status in order to protect the community especially the youth. Also, she urged the barangay captains to achieve the Drug-free Municipality status by the end of 2021.

Present in the activity were PLT James Genita, Deputy of Gubat MPS, and PSSG Bernadetta Estiller from the MADAC Secretariat.
