In Vancouver heroin addicts commit crimes to support their habits. By providing the drug, these addicts will be off the streets, which in turn will prevent them from committing minor street crimes. The “free heroin for addicts” program is doing everything they can to stop the addicts. It’s obvious that addicts have a hard time getting through their day to day lives. Daily activities such as jobs, interactions, and relationships are hard to maintain because of the fact that they’re using. By heroin users being addicted, they’ll do whatever they have to in order to get their hands on the drug. The types of crimes committed are those of breaking and entering as well as stealing. There’s no limits to where they’ll go to retrieve this drug so they can feed their addiction. The problem with this program is it won’t help addicts from using heroin. It’s only trying to save the city from rising crime rates. This will also keep the heroin users out of the hospital. It’s pointless that the hospitals have to deal with people that want to use bad drugs or unsanitary needles and find themselves being unable to afford hospital bills and hard to cope without the drug. This program gives people free heroin in the cleanest way possible. This in return will fix the city but not the addiction that these people face.
