Canada’s introducing prescription heroin


Chronic heroin addicts in Canada will now be able to receive the drug on prescription.

  • Yusuf_al_Kafir

    Many of the progressive-minded clowns who think we should understand and empathize with heroin junkies are the same people who ridiculed Rob Ford for his substance abuse issues.

    (Not to excuse Ford’s substance abuse, just to point out the glaring hypocrisy.)

    • Clink9

      Yuuuuge hypocrisy. Just like all the networks ignoring today’s DNC email leaks. Crickets.

    • FactsWillOut

      I couldn’t care less about Ford’s “substance abuse”. His role as a mayor has fuck all to do with occasionally smoking freebase. You too have been brainwashed.

  • And they said that this would never turn into a slippery slope.

    • FactsWillOut

      A slippery slope into what, exactly?

      • I’m going to let you figure that out.

        • FactsWillOut

          Into what we had in the late 19th century? When kids could buy heroin and coke over the counter and walk around with sub-machine guns? Oh, the horror!!!
          Grow a pair, for cryin’ out loud!

          • Something tells me that you have never seen what addiction looks like.

            I don’t know what gave me that clue.

            Look – this libertarian thing might be delightfully adolescent but it doesn’t always work in real life, particularly when the matter involves people so out of their minds on drugs that they steal from and attack their own families so that they can further waste away their bodies that some cop or paramedic (whose salaries are publicly-funded, I might add) will have to clean up.

            Yes, at a certain point one cannot stop someone from destroying themselves. That doesn’t mean that everyone else has to enable that.

          • FactsWillOut

            I’ve seen more of it than you, toots.
            If you think legalizing is enabling, then I guess that legal booze is enabling binge drinkers, and legal adultery is enabling promiscuity, and legal guns is enabling mass shootings. You are part of the problem.

          • Who pays for this legal booze again?

            Legal adultery?

            Feel free to take this matter into your own hands. Don’t let me stop you.

            Apparently, you know what you’re doing.

          • FactsWillOut

            The people who buy the booze pay for it, and the people who hire whores pay for the whores. What’s the problem with that?
            The same should apply to drugs.
            Want some heroin, cocaine, LSD or pot? Go to the store and buy some.
            I’ve lost a few friends to heroin, and I’ve known addicts who turn tricks to pay for their habits, and the fact is, it’s prohibition that causes that sort of thing. You seem to buy into the leftist idea that “increase the price and the problem will go away”, as the left does with energy. In the end, that sort of thinking only leads to ruthless entrepreneurs taking control of the market, just like in the days of Al Capone.
            The bottom line is that many folk like euphoric drugs, and nothing you can do will change that, and making them illegal does more harm than good, and costs more money.
            And yes, I know exactly what I’m doing. Do you?

            Lib-retardians like FagsWillOut love to stamp their little feet, wail and otherwise throw tantrums on about their precious “rights” (whatever rights those happen to be this week).

            You never hear them whisper a word about personal responsibility. Come on asshole tell us when you’ve ever mentioned where responsibility fits into your little world view. Do individuals ever have a responsibility to the greater good or is it all about you?

            Now this fucking idiot will now gone on one of his 30-posting multi rants in response.
            No I don’t think you know what you’re doing FagsWillOut. But I’m sure you’ll tell me so go ahead.
            Just to let you know I won’t be reading it. It’s late.

          • FactsWillOut

            Ahh the “greater good” hand-wringers come out. You and Trudeau and Hillary share a lot in common.

          • Who can buy booze? People of a certain age.

            That’s right. It’s regulated. Perhaps over-regulated.

            Heroin use is a medical problem, like other drugs, and should be treated as such. Usually the people who use it do so because it masks deeper problems. Sweden (of all places) offers proof that harm reduction is bogus and weaning people off of drugs IS possible. Giving people free access to a drug as powerful as heroin is incredibly insane and no country in the world should allow it. Imagine a percentage of the work-force debilitated by drug use and then tell me how banning drugs is bad.

          • FactsWillOut

            Under no circumstances did I suggest that folk should have free access to drugs. I just don’t think its the government’s or taxpayers job to stop people from taking drugs.
            The world went along fine, and there was no “drug problem” until prohibition kicked in.
            Are you telling me that throughout all of human history, a huge percentage of the workforce was debilitated until the state stepped in to ban certain substances? Really???

          • This comment only works if one hasn’t read your previous posts which clearly indicate that you don’t think that there is a drug problem nor should there be laws against selling drugs.

            “The government should but out and let the market deal with it.”

            Did you or did you not say this?

            As I don’t have time to recount human history for you, I’ll trust that you will, at some point, read a history book.

            Perhaps I’m being too optimistic.

  • Say, what sort of country are you guys running up there?

    • simus1

      Can foresee many taxi drivers “finally getting their papers” and moving on up.

    • G

      It’s not really a country. It’s more of a cocktail party for GLAMAUS.


      where THEY all pick & choose who they get to pretend is a victim this week and the shrinking number of us working types who actually perform useful functions pay through the nose for.

      I keep waiting for the party to end but it just keeps going.

    • FactsWillOut

      A freer one than you, apparently.
      You do realize that all US federal drug laws are unconstitutional, don’t you?

      • Right now I need codeine and will believe anything.

        • FactsWillOut

          Fair enough.
          Just keep in mind that opium is better than codeine, and that the 10A strictly forbids the feds from passing drug laws. Enumerated powers and all that.

    • Millie_Woods

      The sort of country where it’s illegal to smoke within 15 meters of a junkie or a safe-injection site.

      • FactsWillOut

        You can hire a whore in a strip joint and take her to the hotel upstairs, no probs, but smoking at the table?? Busted!

        The radioactive rubble will be a reprieve.

    • Clink9

      We want to turn it into Amsterdam with bike lanes and pot.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    I think it’s a great first step.

    • lolwut?

      It’s not, Vancouver did it and the pure heroin they were giving out led to junkies getting even more addicted, their tolerance levels went through the roof.

      I know people who were in it and the doctors handling the program admitted
      it was a massive failure because they didn’t take into account the poosiblity
      that giving them pure, uncut heroin would lead to higher tolerance

      • FactsWillOut

        So, the docs were giving away free drugs?
        Selling ain’t the same thing.

        • lolwut?

          NAOMI project.

          • FactsWillOut

            The government should but out and let the market deal with it.

    • FactsWillOut

      Let ’em buy their poison like everybody else.

  • G

    When I was smoking I was told many times “nicotine is more addictive than heroin”.

    I quit smoking without any help. These useless fucks can quit too.

    • FactsWillOut

      …and they should be able to buy heroin like you bought smokes.

  • CodexCoder

    Would someone please explain how enabling an addict jives with the fundamental liberal belief of “Do no harm and everything is just”?

    • FactsWillOut

      How is legalizing = enabling?
      It’s legal to have sex out of wedlock. Is that enabling sluttiness?…or do you think that the state should force your views on everybody?

    • Clink9

      We will get to pay for it. Like abortions.

  • Millie_Woods

    So does this mean that heroin is legal now too?

    • FactsWillOut

      It should be. Opium is very easy to grow.

  • FactsWillOut

    Heroin and cokaine, and pot and LSD should be over the counter stuff.
    I’ts amazing that the prohi types think legalizing = condoning.
    Adultery is legal, therefore the government condones promiscuity?
    Drinking is legal, therefore the government condones binge drinking?

    Brainwashed minds who have been convinced that their only protection from the world’s evils is the state.

  • Jay Currie

    At the moment Canada is in the grips of a fentanyl wave. I would much rather have heroin addicts get pure heroin than dead.

    • FactsWillOut

      As the potheads say, big pharma is the worst pusher out there. Big pharma gets the help of our elected representatives.

  • FactsWillOut

    Bottom line:
    If you think the state should protect you against inanimate object like guns, drugs or books, then you are a libtard.

  • K1

    This should only be used in treatment centers to get people of the addiction!

    • FactsWillOut

      Not with my tax money, it shouldn’t.
      It ain’t the taxpayer’s job to save druggies from themselves.

  • lolwut?

    They did this nearly a decade ago in Vancouver and it was an overwhelming failure by their own admission. (NAOMI Project)

    They were giving junkies clean, pure heroin as opposed to the heavily cut heroin on the streets.., the result, bigger addictions.

    Pretty much everyone who participated in it, regretted it.

    • FactsWillOut

      Giving !=selling.
      It ain’t the taxpayer’s job to protect folk from themselves.

      I seem to remember in Vancouver in the 90’s, when pure heroin hit the streets, the junkies dropped like flies, and the real users knew the product was good and pure.

      • lolwut?

        I worked in several of the most notorious hotels in the DTES.
        Regent, Balmoral…..etc.

        I know it all to well….. 60+ bodies on shifts I did
        including 3 in one episode that made the news.

        • FactsWillOut

          Still, It ain’t the taxpayer’s job to protect folk from themselves.

          If folk want to engage in behavior that kills them, so what?

          • lolwut?

            The “Logic” behind the NAOMI project was to give out clean heroin with clean needles with them injecting under supervision

            – Pure heroin that isn’t cut by things that cause issues like abscesses leading to lost limbs, spinal infections..etc.

            – Removing the crime element,, free drugs, no need to steal, prostitute.. stuff like that.

            – Keep the person “Normal” as possible so they can focus
            on seeking treatment when they decide they want it.

            – Supervised injection = less deaths.

            On the surface it appears like a good idea
            but the purity of the heroin just increased their
            tolerance leading to needing more and more
            and they rarely if ever made a decision to seek
            to get off, it became too easy to be a junky

            As most addicts will tell you, it’s when you hit rock bottom
            and spend a few years suffering that you actually have a chance of snapping yourself out of it and seeking help.

            Places like Insite (Injection site) and the NAOMI project
            removes the risk and much of the misery that leads people
            to quit.

            The poverty pimps love that.

  • FactsWillOut

    Look at all the libtards who want the government to enforce their drug-free safe spaces! Just like the leftards and their gun free or freedom of speech free safe spaces.
    Utterly disgusting!
