"I believe that legalisation of cannabis will be interpreted that there is no harm for a person 


to do drugs in all its forms and modes of ingestion, something which is obviously wrong. 

On the contrary, society, through those responsible for its good administering, has the responsibility 

to protect persons from myriad forms of poverty which drugs can lead to."

(Fr. Emmanuel Cordina to all national stakeholders, Victoria, Gozo, 17 July 2017)


"There should not be any compromise where drug use was concerned and thus I express my support to the OASI Foundation in its stand against the legalisation of recreational drugs."

"Be fearless in clearly and calmly reminding everyone that a society 

under the spell of drugs suffers a moral metastasis that peddles hellfire, 

sows rampant corruption and creates fiscal paradises."
