What would you do if a group of policemen showed up at your doorstep and asked you to pee into a plastic cup for an on-the-spot drug test that could reveal whether or not you had taken shabu or marijuana in the last seven days?

AFTER the condemnable issue on money extortion or the so called “revolutionary taxes”, once again, here comes the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), making its wave to achieving another one of its signature deviousness.
