Free heroin, cocaine and meth to be handed out in Vancouver

Lol! "Handed out." This has been such a long and arduous process, and it's never gonna be "handed out" to anyone. If you have a long term drug dependency and meet the criteria for a given program, you will go through several rounds of intake, and finally be assessed by a doctor or nurse practitioner and prescribed a tightly controlled dosage of the pharmaceutical drug replacement that is right for you. It is then dispensed by trained medical staff at regular intervals in a clinical setting and dosages are reviewed constantly. The supply is kept double locked and is checked and counted multiple times a day.

This is medicine being prescribed and administered by doctors and nurses to help people who are sick with an illness. It is not a free for all.
