Vancouver has a huge problem with heroin addicts committing crimes to support their habits. The “free heroin for addicts” program is doing everything they to stop addicts from committing crimes. Addicts have a hard time getting through their day to day lives such as jobs, interactions, and relationships. Because of their addiction they will steal, burglarize, and vandalize for the drug. No limit is to vast when the result leads to their next fix, feeding into their addiction. The problem with this program is that it won’t help to ween these addicts off using heroin. The city is the only benefiting factor in keeping the crime rates from rising. By providing the drug, these addicts will be off the streets, which in turn will prevent them from committing minor street crimes. This will also keep the heroin users out of the hospital. Hospitals having to deal with addicts who choose to use drugs or unsanitary needles and then finding themselves unable to afford hospital bills and hard to cope without the drug. This program gives people free heroin in the cleanest way possible. This will in turn fix the city but not the addiction that these people face.
