Earlier this week, actress Alice Dixson made news on social media following her controversial post about marijuana plant. On Instagram, the seasoned actress pose for a photo in what seemed to be a marijuana farm abroad. Alice Dixson also told her followers that she will be releasing a vlog about her experience soon.

However, as of writing, the said post has already been taken down by the actress. Philippine Entertainment Portal talked with a PDEA officer to confirm if Alice might get into trouble for her pro-marijuana post, since the cannabis plant is still illegal in the Philippines.

Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) spokesperson Derrick Carreon claimed that the cannabis plant is still outlawed in the Philippines, despite being used by others for ‘medicinal purposes.’

“Under Philippine law, kahit po may advocate ng medical marijuana. It doesn’t pertain to the plant or any part of the plant [or] it’s medical preparations either injectable or pill or whatever. Hindi po yung halaman. Sa Philippine law, illegal pa rin ang marijuana,” says Carreon.

Will Alice be investigated? As of now, they still need further investigation to determine if they have to summon Alice Dixson in the PDEA office. According to Carreon, it’s one thing to use marijuana and it’s another to promote it on social media, especially when you’re a celebrity.

“Outside of her post, yung patungkol sa marijuana, nananawagan po tayo noon, ever since, na dapat po ay maging huwaran ang mga celebrity kasi tinitingala po sila ng mga tao. So, mag-ingat po sila sa kanilang mga pinagsasasabi at pinagpopo-post. Definitely, they‘re likely to take flak or they’re likely to encounter criticisms kapag ginawa po nila iyon.”

However, Kris claimed that she suffered from an episode of vertigo earlier before the shoot. It came to a point when she fell to the floor because of her tunneling vision. Because of this, Kris revealed that she is in search for a reliable nurse who can help her during set.

“Kaya naghahanap kami ng isa pang nurse na sana yung kaya akong buhatin with benefits you know, SSS, Philhealth, Pag-Ibig. Ilang days akong hindi nag-post kasi I’m not feeling well, alam kong marami na kayong problema kaya bakit ko pa dadagdagan ang problema ninyo by sharing my problems. Updates tomorrow,” wrote Kris.
