Anti-drug group’s demand: One Direction members must undergo drug tests before Manila concert

They have to test negative, too!


It seems that One Direction’s "marijuana video" has made a group of concerned Pinoys very angry. (Read also: One Direction fans attack Lourd de Veyra for comment about boy band members’ "marijuana video.")


ANC reports, "Initially, the anti-drug group Laban ng Pamilyang Pilipino wanted the government to step in and cancel One Direction’s scheduled performances, which are set on March 21 and March 22 next year at the SM Mall of Asia Arena."


Now, the group has chosen to be "more compassionate."


As the report revealed, the Laban ng Pamilyang Pilipino is demanding that all the members of One Direction undergo drug tests before they are allowed to perform in the country. More importantly, they should test negative for marijuana and other illegal substances before they can sing and dance in front of their devoted Pinoy fans.


The report quoted Jonathan Morales, the founder of Laban ng Pamilyang Pilipino, who said, "One Direction does not set a good example for the many Filipino teens who idolize them."


Our question: Is it fair to require Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne to undergo drug tests when it was only Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson in that video?
