AN administrative search in Cebu City’s boarding houses near universities will be done to flush out drug users, the city’s anti-drugs czar said yesterday.

In yesterday’s 888 News Forum, lawyer Paul Oaminal said the search will be used to determine the presence of drug dens in these boarding houses.
