Recently a reoccurring problem have been taking place in Vancouver, with heroin addicts committing crimes to support their drug habits. The “free heroin for addicts” program is doing everything they can to stop the addicts. A problem Vancouver seem to encounter a lot is that these drug addicts are committing large crime rate due to these addicts. An obvious analogy is that addicts are having a hard time getting through their day to day lives. Daily activities such as jobs, interactions, and relationships are hard to maintain when heroin has been taking over the addicts life. When being addicted, addicts will do whatever they can to do to get their hands on the drug, which usually leads to crime related activities. The of crimes committed are based around robbery, for which it makes it easier for these addicts to get money to exchange for heroin. When it comes to these addicts trying to get there hands on heroin there are no limits to where they will go, so that they can feed their addiction. Problems that occur with this program is that it doesn’t really ween these addicts off using heroin. The program is only trying to save the city from rising crime rates that occur from these addicts. When Vancouver provides heroin, these addicts will be off the streets, which in turn will prevent them from committing minor street crimes. Handing drugs to the addicts will also keep the heroin users out of the hospital for which they can monitor over these user. While hospitals have to deal with people that want to use bad drugs or unsanitary needles, addicts tend to find themselves in a position of not being unable to afford hospital bills and hard to cope without the drug. A program that gives people free heroin in the cleanest way possible. Which will in turn fix the city but not the addiction that these people face.
