This is why you do not become a heroin addict. Interesting insight into the life and times of a homeless man.

So? I`m not a heroin or any other addict but nearly everyone I knew
20 years ago is dead. Besides my husband there`s only one other guy from
the old gang still kicking.

As for the Mental Health subject, GTFO of Toronto, there`s a couple million people in the area or something along those lines, of course it`s going to be hard to get in. Move to St. Catherines where there is only 200k people, you`ll get in almost right away, it is an hour by bus.

As for the homeless for 24 years, that`s his own fault, blame the Prime Minister if you must, but I know people on welfare, most have subsidized houseing, which means their rent is based on income, so some people pay like $90 a month for a three bedroom place.

As a recovering heroin addict myself, I can say it should not be legal, ever. I`m all for legalizing weed, but heroin is a totally different story. I never full understood the difference until I got hooked. I`ve had three friends die from it in the past six months. The guy in this video is right, that`s where it ends. It`s where it always ends. You think you have control. You think you know how to do it properly. Then you pull back on that rig just one last time..

I love how the comments have become places to argue and debate people`s opinions, rather than the content of the original link.

On the surface legalizing the big 3, Heroin, Cocaine(and crack) and Meth sounds like the absolute stupidest thing ever. Read the statistics and results of Portugal de-criminalizing drug usage, and it makes a hell of a lot of sense. It allows for better treatment options for the addicts while still punishing the dealers and traffickers.

Why do time? Just get clean, prison WON`T help them. Seriously which do you prefer? A drug dealer or a drug dealer that has to protect himself from other drug dealers and police?

@Pooptart19 Your sarcasm is quite obvious but I think the biggest problem with with what he said about benefits is the closing of mental health institutions. The percentage of inmates who should really be under psychiatric care, not prison, is in increasing at an alarming rate simply because the government doesn`t have the resources to maintain mental health institutions so they have nowhere else to put them.

@Draculya

It has to be legal because such laws force most addicts to steal and hurt others to get their next high. Any action you take part in you accept the outcome, good or bad. Lastly, laws against consensual crimes encourage risk assessment over ethics assessment.

@Cajun247 Heroin has to be illegal because of its addictive nature and OD risk. Totally different to pot.

Mike Harris sucks because he cut welfare money to people who were using the funds to buy drugs? The dastardly cad!
