MANILA, Philippines --- Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) chief Aaron Aquino on Thursday said the government has started conducting a survey to determine the number of users and pushers in the Philippines, more than three years after President Rodrigo Duterte launched his controversial war on drugs.
