United Nations (UN) special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary, and arbitrary killings Agnes Callamard tweeted on May 5, 2017 (Friday) quoting a certain Prof. Carl Hart that “there is no evidence Shabu leads to violence or causes brain damage #Philippines drug policy forum”.

To add to that, she also tweeted that drug effects are “exaggerated” to meet the personal interests of police and scientists.

As her claims were hotly debated over by netizens, Philippine General Hospital Dr. Teddy Herbosa debunked Callamrd’s tweets by saying that, “I disagree. I headed PGH ER for years. Cases of psychosis associated with Shabu. I guess Prof Hart has no actual experience”.

Herbosa backed up his claims when a certain netizen named Wen inquired for any studies to support that shabu does induce psychosis by sending the link which can be read here http://academic.oup.com.ln.is/jvk5I 

Herbosa’s experience and studies gave credence to his claims which prompted social media personality Edwin Jamora to express that medical doctors are more credible in discussing the drug issue,“We don’t listen to quack doctors. We listen to real doctors like Dr. Ted Herbosa,” Jamora said.

Jamora noted that Herbosa’s experience is rooted in his medical practice while Callamrd is merely a “wanna-be with zero experience”.

“”Dr.” title is PhD in Political Science and she will lecture us one drugs?! Puh-leeze!” Jamora added.

  1. There you go, no need to import speakers, we have many in the country with both knowledge and experience...kaya lang, sadly there is still that colonial mentality in some of us who are in sensitive positions as "influencers"...being an "influencer" is no joke, because added with this is accountability. Thanks for the chance to make a comment.

  2. Not her fault Edwin, the invitation was a great chance to visit our well-advertised country! :o) pero, joke aside, the least she chould have done was make researches from credible sources and base her speeches on these. siguro akala nya hindi tayo nagbabasa, "pobre espirito".
