I saw that shit on the news a few days ago about free alcohol,they showed some worn out bum staggering up to a counter and some lady pouring cranberry juice into a glass,then pouring a good dose of Smirnoff Vodka into the mix........the drink was a big one too.The news also mentioned this is a safer alternative from what they use to drink.....mouthwash and Lysol.

Man this country is starting to get fucked,I'm just waiting for the day they start giving out free gasoline to the people who can't afford it.

It's funny.
I remember going to downtown Seattle and the homeless actually looked like bums, while the ones in Vancouver are just druggies.

Shit happens.

The smart people already know it doesn't work,but for the rest of the dumbass population in this city that think it does,the government has succeeded.

The government would rather piss off 20% of the population,than 80% stupid ones.Sucks there are more stupid people in this city,than smart ones.

Well on a personal level I've lived with both a crack addict and my father has struggled with alcohol addiction. I understand to a certain point what these people go through and why they do it. If I ever took this short story a step further I'd definetly offer my time to the SIS if they would let me.

you missed my point

i wasnt comparing the substance.

i was comparing the level of use turning you slowly progressively into an addict.

i only used those examples so people could relate. i don't think anyone can relate directly to being a crack addict, they wouldn't be on rs reading, they would have already sold their computers for cash.

u can ship em all of or kill em all or whatever, but a small % of the population will become junkies and then what... kill them all again? lol why don't we just kill all humans then we'll have no problems.

junkies were all once normal people, none of them just woke up one day and said to themselves... "hey i think im gonna be a junkie".

becoming a junkie is like farting in public or burping at the dinner table... it's rude, you never intended it, but for whatever reason, you're doing it and you don't even remember how you got there. it's a slow and progressive thing.

how many potheads do you guys know? how many of those potheads do u think woke up one day and said to themselves, "imma be a pothead!"

how many of you have been so sloshed at a gathering, and at the beginning of the night you didn't even plan to drink? imagine it like that, but way more progressive. you don't feel it, you don't notice it.

it's like that potbelly you've got growing in your midsection. or those thunder thighs.
you didn't choose for it to happen, nor did it happen over night. but it's there.

killing all the fat people in the world ain't gonna get rid of fat people forever, ya get what i mean?
If we get rid of the idiot mentality then there wouldn't be any fat/lazy/crackheads/addicts in the world, too bad this mentality took over a lot of countries, but if you change the way of thinking then you'll get somewhere. I'm sure people make lame excuses for eating fast food and getting high and whatnot, life isn't easy it's hard. If you think turning towards the easy things will help you, well... you have a long way to learn

It's shit like this that makes me think (for a second..) that those lunatic republicans south of the border might just be on to something.

I work, I pay taxes, a lot of fucking taxes.

To know that my money is being used to support welfare single mothers (who shouldn't have got pregnant being that they did not have the means to support a child), fund detox and rehab for people with addiction problems, pay police salarys for cops that spend all day babysitting these fucking junkies, pay to house prisoners that are in and out of jail their whole lives and likely never pay any taxes... and most of all that my tax dollars get lost in the bureaucracy behind all this shit.

Nevermind foreign aid... @&#^!!

I hope every last one of those junkies OD's, you might be worried about them dying, but thats a one way street, when they do drugs, they don't give a shit about themselves, you, and certainly not your tax dollars.

They don't care enough to stay off the dope, fuck em, I don't care enough to save them from themselves.

Losers.

Edit: It's not fair for me to rant like this.. I haven't paid my taxes in 2 years, (But really, before that I paid a lot.. and I will be paying for those two years whenever my loser accountant actually does her job, she's probably too busy smoking federally supplied rock)

Driving is a privilege, abuse it they take it away. Life is a privilege, abuse take it away. Why the fuck should we as society support the weak when so few of us can support ourselves.
Kill the leaches to end it fast or ignore them and let em die.

Many of these people addicted to severe drugs never wanted to be in this spot in the first place. Nobody chooses to be in this situation, but obviously some unanticipated circumstances have put them in this position; which is why we cannot just “kill them all”.
The Government claims that this plan is acted out for cost savings in the long run, because of the amount of money required to have people infiltrate the health care system.
This is a proactive approach in terms of preventing the spreading of diseases.

However, people who actually pay money through taxes, work hard, and contribute to society should procure the benefits from it. At the same time, these people of the DTES shouldn’t be neglected, we are all human beings.

Also, if heroin and crack are allowed, shouldn’t every other drug be legal? People smoking weed do not pose any harm on society, and they’re not demanding for things to be free. It is now legal for people to do such hard drugs, but when we do something less we must take a negative repercussion...
