Canada's New Plan on the war on drugs

In an unprecedented attempt to curve drug overdosing and disease spreading from "contaminated needles," Canada has unveiled a plan to allow people addicted to heroin to visit a clinic for "treatment." 
Crosstown Medical Clinic in Vancouver, Canada is expanding a program that allows heroin users to frequent their facility to inject pure heroin.  Here is how it works: When a patient visits the clinic, they are fully evaluated by a physician-led-team. Patients that are "treatment-resistant" are then prescribed pharmaceutical-grade heroin. While this approach is novel for Canada, some European countries already have similar                                                       programs. 

Immediate Benefits of Canada Plan includes:
1. The patients is seen and workup by a proven professional.
1. The patient is given pure prescribed medicine, if the meet criteria.(Not a composite of substances which may even be laced with the opioid respiratory depressant Fentanyl.) 
2. The patient receives clean and safe needles each time they inject heroin.  This change should decrease the incidence if HIV, Hepatitis C and B, and skin infection.
3. Danger: When addicts search for drugs, the are often placed in compromising situations when they may have to perform an act of servitude before the can acquire their medication.
