The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has issued subpoenas to Dr. Hayden Kho and to Katrina Halili summoning them to appear for investigation this coming Friday, May 29.
The PDEA's entry into the controversy was occasioned by the admission of Hayden Kho's lawyer, Atty. Lorna Kapunan and by his own mother, Mrs. Irene Kho, that the doctor got hooked into drugs and their allegation that it was actress Katrina Halili who lured Hayden into using drugs in the first place.

This move by PDEA is a welcome development. The way celebrities behave in public has a strong influence in modeling public behavior. Somehow, their example affects what eventually becomes acceptable or not. Perhaps the public should now remind these stars that they are but mere mortals, that they're not above the law, and that their popularity will not shield them from a trip to prison if they insist on making that trip.
