Abstract/Summary

This study is made for the purpose of knowing the prejudice of people against drug users. In this regard a population size of eighty (80) were tested using the implicit association test. Forty (40) of the participants are coming from the lower class and the other forty (40) from the upper class. The population is composed of nineteen (19) to sixty six (66) years old. The researchers were able to prove their hypothesis, which states the upper classes have higher prejudice against drug users wherein social identity theory was used as the basis. The importance of considering social class in the study is based on the current situation of the country under the war on drugs of President Duterte.
