It will cost ₱.960 Trillion to rehab 4 million addicts at ₱20k/month.
Who will takeover if Duterte quits? Robredo?
Last, December 12, 2016 while addressing The Outstanding Filipino (TOFIL) 2016 awardees, Duterte said "I want to cry, hindi ko kaya" as he talked about the magnitude of the drug problem. He said there are over 4,000,000 drug addicts right now.
I computed that if it cost ₱20,000 to rehabilitate one shabu addict every month and there are 4 million drug addicts, it will cost us ₱.960 Trillion. Where the hell are we going to get the money?
What is one trillion? To simplify, this is
- one million (1,000,000)
- one billion, (1,000,000,000)
- one trillion (1,000,000,000,000)
