He shocked the world by previously admitting to the use of marijuana and crystal meth when he was a teenager, and Pacquiao has vowed to ramp up prison sentences to combat the problem during his proposed presidency.

“We have to put in jail those who are using drugs, selling drugs – that’s what the law says,” he told AFP. “Before, I’m naive, that’s why I use drugs. I don’t know the law, nowadays people they know already that the law is not allowing the illegal drugs.”

And in his plan to succeed Duterte, Pacquiao has vowed to remove the bloodshed from the war against illegal substances offering them right to a fair defence.
