The huge problem in Vancouver with heroin addicts is that crimes are being committed to support their habits. The “free heroin for addicts” program is doing everything they can to stop the addicts. The problem in Vancouver is the large crime rate due to the addicts. It is obvious that addicts have a hard time getting through their day to day lives. Addicts have trouble maintaining daily activities such as jobs, interactions, and relationships. Heroin users will do whatever they need to do to get drugs in their hands. The types of crimes committed are those of breaking and entering as well as stealing. Heroin users have no limits to retrieve drugs to feed their addiction. The program is meant to save the city from rising crime rates, but not to ween our the addicts off using heroin. 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 is 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 will in turn fix the city but not the addiction that these people face.
