Kirsten- thanks for reporting on the global impact of substances. What is happening in the Philippines is awfully close to human rights violations. I wish that the UN would take more serious actions but Duterte cancelled the UN trip to the Philippines next year. That trip was intended to informally investigate the mass killings of drug lords. The NYT did a particularly chilling expose into it a couple months back but I can’t find it.

In addition, Trump is essentially propping up Duterte with their warm and friendly relationship. That is scary.
