Creation or History

Overview

For thirty years, Republic Act 6425, otherwise known as the Dangerous Drugs Act of 1972, had been the backbone of the Philippine drug law enforcement system. Despite the efforts of various law enforcement agencies mandated to implement the law, the drug problem alarmingly escalated. The high profitability of the illegal drug trade, compounded by the then existing laws that imposed relatively light penalties to offenders, greatly contributed to the gravity of the problem.

Recognizing the need to further strengthen existing laws governing Philippine drug law enforcement system,Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 was signed on June 7,2002 and took effect on July 4, 2002. R.A. 9165 defines more concrete courses of action for the national anti-drug campaign and imposes heavier penalties to offenders.

The enactment of RA 9165 reorganized the Philippine drug law enforcement system. While the Dangerous Drug Board (DDB) remains as the policy-making body, it created the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency(PDEA) under the Office of the President. The new law abolished the National Drug Law Enforcement and Prevention Coordinating Center, Philippine National Police Narcotics Group (PNP Nargrp), National Bureau of Investigation Narcotics Unit (NBI NU), and the Customs Narcotics Interdiction Office (CNIO).

On July 30, 2002, President Arroyo appointed the first PDEA Director General that officially activated PDEA as the lead anti-drug agency. A year after its creation, the support mechanism for PDEA as the lead agency in the campaign against illegal drugs was reinforced with the issuance of Executive Order No. 218 on June 18, 2003. In compliance with this Executive Order, PDEA provided technical support and exercised operational supervision over respective anti-drug units organized by concerned law enforcement agencies; the Anti-Illegal Drug Special Operation Task Force of the National Bureau of Investigation; and the Customs Task Group and Task Forces on Dangerous Drugs and Controlled Chemicals of the Bureau of Customs.
