In Vancouver there is a huge problem with heroin addicts committing crimes to support their habits. The “free heroin for addicts” program is doing everything they can to stop the addicts. The problem is a large crime rate due to the addicts. Obviously 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 they are using. Heroin users being addicted, they will do whatever they have to do to get their hands on the drug. Types of crimes committed are those of breaking and entering as well as stealing. No limits to where they will go to retrieve this drug so that they can feed their addiction. The problem with this program is that it won’t help to ween these addicts off using heroin. Only trying to save the city from rising crime rates that they’re up to. 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. It’s pointless that the hospitals have to deal with people who want to use bad drugs or unsanitary needles and find themselves being unable to afford hospital bills and hard to cope without the drug. Programs give people free heroin in the cleanest way possible. In return this will fix the city but not the addiction that these people face.
