Vancouver suffers from a drug epidemic where heroin addicts are committing crimes to feed their addiction, so a program called “free heroin for addicts” attempt’s to stop this. Heroin addicts are responsible for a large portion of the crime rate in Vancouver and have a hard time getting through their day-to-day lives. Daily activities such as jobs, interactions, and relationships are hard to maintain due to their addiction. These heroin addicts will do whatever possible including breaking and entering, and stealing. The flaw with the program may be that it doesn’t help addicts get off heroin. The program’s main goal seems to be just to save the city from rising crime rates related to heroin-related crime. Although the pros of providing heroin to addicts would result in addicts being off the streets, and no need for them to commit petty crimes. Providing heroin also would in turn keep users out of the hospital. Hospitals continuously deal with addicts who suffer from their own infliction and do not have enough money to afford the bill. By giving people heroin in the cleanest way possible the program keeps addicts out of hospitals. The program will fix the crime that takes place in the city, but will not fix the addicts who live in it.
