Vancouver BC's Downtown Eastside is the poorest neighbourhood in the city.
This is their way of tackling the problem of drug addiction.
IF ALL YOU SEE IS SUPERVISED DRUG USE IN VANCOUVER. Then yes, that is what you see. However, you've failed to notice that this help comes with support programs and other services. And it's showing results. But, it also isn't a perfect program and only catered to a specific and special area. But we're trying.
Because whatever we're doing in Canada and the US seems to not be working.
If this thought just ran through your head, "Vancouver has romanticized drug use". Then you've missed my point. And somehow have a knack for twisting words and sentences to fit in with your beliefs.
Thank you Rikki for helping to create a discussion on an issue such as this. Though, there isn't too much discussion going on. Just plain ignorance and rudeness.
