Free Heroin For Canadians!

FOXNews.com - U.S. & World - Vancouver Tries Free Heroin Program

Everyday it seems Canada is following the wonderful lead of those sophisticated Euroweenies. Here are some choice quotes.
Vancouver Police Chief Jamie Graham (search) is among supporters who say the heroin giveaway will let junkies shoot up without having to resort to theft or prostitution to buy their drugs. Breaking that cycle of crime, they argue, is the first step toward turning an addict's life around.

ā€œIā€™m not a medical expert, this is not my field. I'm an expert in public safety," Graham said. "And if this will help reduce the crime rate ā€” I'm all for it.
"

Here's an thought. If they are caught commiting a crime why don't you put them in jail? A long enough jail term will let these losers dryout and if the recommitt they get a real long term. This guy has the gall to call himself a "expert in public safety". So now you have a bunch of felons running around Vancouver smacked out of their gourds. I feel safer already. Even the junkies are skepitable.
Junkies offered different views of the program to FOX News. Some think it's the government's way of killing them, while others say they can't wait for the free dope. But none of them thought it would eventually get them clean.

"I think it would lower the crime rate. Nobody's gonna be robbing each other. Nobody's going to be sick enough to rob each other. All be taken care of. Free dope, woo-hoo,ā€ said heroin addict Olivia Edgars. Recovered addict Chuck Swesey - who's been clean 20 years - says the program smacks of government drug pushing. He says he knows how he would've ended under a program like this: "I'd be dead ... or I'd be in a jail or an institution."

The $8 million Canadian program is patterned after similar efforts in Europe.
Even the junkies are honest enough to admit this program won't work.
