The “free heroin for addicts” program in Vancouver is doing everything they can to stop the addicts because of the increasing number of crimes that addicts cause. They are not hesitant to steal, to break into houses, just to retrieve the heroin that controls their lives. These people have a hard time coping with their day to day lives. By providing the drug to the addicts, they will no longer have to be on the streets, doing anything they can to get their drug, which would result in a decrease of crimes on the street. If people continue to overuse it and wind up in hospitals, there is not much the doctors can do when their patient does not have a way to pay for treatment and squirms in bed in need of their daily fix of heroin. It is a waste of the hospitals time to send them there. This program will give people free heroin in the cleanest way possible. Although this may not fix the addiction that these people face, it will fix the city.
