At least some one in authority has got it right.
Canada's Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney does NOT back reports of Vancouver having a crack pipe vending machine.
He says "“We disagree with promoters of this initiative. Drug use
damages the health of individuals and the safety of our communities. We
believe law enforcement should enforce the law.
While the NDP and
Liberals would prefer that doctors hand out heroin and needles to those
suffering from addiction, this Government supports treatment that ends
drug use, including limiting access to drug paraphernalia by young
We will continue to protect Canadian families and communities against the harmful effects of dangerous and illegal drugs.”
