VG Lagman backs Padilla’s medical marijuana bill
Albay Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman has expressed support to the medical marijuana bill being advocated by Senator Robin Padilla.
Lagman recently visited the Senate where he had a chance to speak with Padilla.
“Sen. Robinhood Padilla told me, ‘kakampi ako ni papa mo na si Cong. Edcel sa Divorce Bill niya.’ Sabi ko, ‘maraming salamat. Sabihan ko siya,” Lagman shared.
Lagman then conveyed to Padilla his support to the controversial measure.
“Then i saw his army green jacket with hoodie with “marijuana leaves” clearly printed all over it so i told him, ‘i also support your medical marijuana bill.’Then with his action star smile he replied, ‘yan ang oragon!’,” he added.
“Will also try to secure some help from Sen. Mark Villar to help the abaca industry in Albay for Albayano MSMEs,” he continued.
