Are you living in one? Only eight Barangays in South Cotabato have drug problem

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) identified these Barangays as General Paulino Santos in Koronadal; Ambalgan in Sto. Niño; Kematu in Tboli; Ned, Talisay and Seloton in Lake Sebu; and Poblacion and Kipalbig in Tampakan.

Even so, the PDEA has classified these villages as only “slightly” affected by illegal drugs.
