It will cost ₱.960 quadrillion to rehab 4 million addicts at ₱20k/month. Where will we get the money?

Who will takeover if Duterte quits? Robredo?

The task is almost an impossible burden to solve, President Rodrigo Duterte must finish his task for he cannot step down and runaway from the responsibility.

Last, December 12, 2016 while addressing The Outstanding Filipino (TOFIL) 2016 awardees, Duterte said "I want to cry, hindi ko kaya" as he talked about the magnitude of the drug problem. He said there are over 4,000,000 drug addicts right now.

I computed that if it cost ₱20,000 to rehabilitate one shabu addict every month and there are 4 million drug addicts, it will cost us ₱.960 quadrillion. Where the hell are we going to get the money?

What is one quadrillion? To simplify, this is
  • one million (1,000,000)
  • one billion, (1,000,000,000)
  • one trillion (1,000,000,000,000)
  • one quadrillion ( (1,000,000,000,000,000)

That's lot of money. Where will we get that?
