Pamuspusan noted Bacolod, a highly urbanized city, is the number one problem area in Western Visayas in terms of illegal drugs.

“This is a challenge to the police chiefs and the whole city police force,” he said, adding the city attracts many visitors (https://dailyguardian.com.ph/get-rid-of-drugs-bacolod-cops-told/).
