Benguet town bars sale of rugby, solvents to minors
by Ofelia C. Empian

The municipality of Kabayan has barred the sale of rugby and solvents to minors.

In an ordinance, the sangguniang bayan made it unlawful for anyone to sell, give, or distribute rugby or solvent to minors.

“In the previous years, there were information in our municipality that some children have been engaged in sniffing rugby, which reportedly affected their behavior and attitude,” the ordinance stated.

The council said it is a public knowledge that among the substances used as alternate to dangerous drugs are rugby and other solvents, which are being sniffed and are accessible to any person.

“There is a need to regulate the sale and distribution of the same as sniffing of rugby and other solvents will directly affect the physical and psychological well-being of an individual,” the ordinance reads.

Also, the measure has made it unlawful for any minor to be in possession of rugby or solvent in any quantity.

“If in doubt of the age, require the buyer to present legal documents as proof,” it stated.

All business establishments engaging in the sale of rugby and other solvents are required to maintain a logbook where the name, address and purpose of the person in buying the substance shall be recorded.

The ordinance also requires that all persons using rugby and other solvents in their trade or other activities must keep the substance in a secured place where no one except them have access to it.

Violators will be penalized P1,000 for the first offense, P2,000 for the second offense, and for the third and succeeding offenses, they shall be fined with P2,500 and cancellation of business permit.

Meanwhile, minors who are caught in possession of rugby and other solvents shall be brought to the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office for appropriate action.

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Benguet gave a favorable review to the ordinance.
