A huge problem has surfaced in Vancouver with heroin addicts committing crimes to support their habits. Daily activities such as jobs, interactions, and relationships are hard to maintain because of the fact that they are using. By heroin users being addicted, they will do whatever they have to do to get their hands on the drug. The types of crimes committed are those of breaking and entering as well as stealing. There are no limits to where they will go to retrieve this drug so that they can feed their addiction. The “free heroin for addicts” program is doing everything they can to stop the addicts. The problem with the program is that it won’t help to ween these addicts off using heroin. The program is only trying to save the city from rising crime rates. The program provides the drug, keeping addicts off the streets, which in turn will prevent them from committing minor street crimes. 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. The program gives people free heroin in the cleanest way possible. The crime problem in the city will be solved, but not the addiction that these people face.
