Vancouver faces a difficult problem because of heroin addicts committing heinous crimes such as, breaking and entering, and stealing. These addicts will go to immeasurable lengths to obtain heroin. Many normal aspects of life such as jobs, interactions, and relationships become huge challenges to these users. The city of Vancouver has developed a method to combat the negative effects brought on by a surplus of heroin users. The “free heroin for addicts” program provides free, clean heroin to anyone who needs it. The result is less users on the streets which reduces the crime rate. The drawback is this program only focuses on lowering crime rate, not saving heroin users from their deadly addiction.
