In Vancouver, heroin addicts commit crimes to support their habits. Addicts ruin their lives because of the need to do whatever they have to do, from breaking in and entering to stealing, to get their hands on heroin. The “free heroin for addicts” program provides heroin for these addicts; however, the program mostly aims to save the city from rising crimes from these aforementioned addicts rather than weening addicts off of heroin. Thus, the city’s crime rate will lower, but the addiction rate will remain stagnant. However, the program keeps addicts out of the hospital from bad drugs or unsanitary needles with hardly affordable hospital bills by giving free heroin in the cleanest way possible.
