Duterte is wrong, goyim.
You can’t just kill drug dealers.
Yes, that ensures for certain that the drugs stop flowing – but it’s also really mean.
If you truly want to help addicts, you have to become the drug dealer.
The Canadian Health Ministry is proposing that heroin be administered to drug addicts outside hospitals. Canada says that it is battling a severe public-health crisis which could kill over 3,000 people due to opioid overdoses this year.
Health Canada suggested “remov[ing] some of the regulatory restrictions specific to diacetylmorphine [pharmaceutical grade heroin] in the Narcotic Control Regulations,” the ministry said in a statement.
“These proposed changes would allow [heroin] to be administered to patients outside of a hospital setting and provide an additional treatment option for healthcare providers,” it added. According to the proposed amendments, heroin-assisted treatment can be considered part of a “comprehensive treatment plan that could include other related services, such as primary healthcare and counseling.”
The plan was announced by Canadian Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor during the Canadian Center on Substance Abuse’s conference in the city of Calgary on Wednesday. “We plan to support innovative pilot projects that will provide a safer opioid alternative such as dilaudid [opioid-class pain medication] to people who use drugs at supervised consumption sites,” she said. Canada currently has 25 supervised drug injection sites, including the one in Calgary.
More than 2,800 opioid drug users died in 2016 and the number is expected to reach 3,000 in 2017, the health minister stated. “This is an emergency and … sometimes the short-term measures need to be taken to address the reality on the ground. We are in the midst of a national public health crisis and no one group or government can address it alone,” Taylor said.
I didn’t even know Canada had this same heroin issue.
I guess I should have assumed that, however.
All they ever do is copy off of us.
