There is a huge problem in Vancouver, concerning heroin addicts. A program was designed, that gave the addicts free heroin. Even with the “free heroin for addicts” project crime rates continue to rise. It is obvious that addicts have a hard time getting through their day to day lives. The program does not help addicts avoid heroin. The program does however, help the streets of Vancouver become a better place with less crime. Heroin users also fill the hospital because of their infections from dirty needles. The program gives addicts free heroin in the cleanest way possible. The ‘free heroin for addicts” program will in turn fix the city, but not the addiction that these people face.
