Vancouver, B.C., Canada is seeing it. The CBC did this piece on the difficulties there.
Permissiveness is a hallmark of libertarian doctrine. Here we see the results. Once permissive drug acceptance is instituted what does society do? Do we write these drug users off as volunteer Darwinists?
I am heartened that the video shows a group of volunteers working to help the overdosed drug users but are they doing them any favors?
Hat tip to Kate who says this:
I’ve returned to my hometown of Vancouver for a few days and am shocked and bewildered by what I’m seeing. There are marijuana shops all over the city now, many spouting the drug as some sort of miracle medical potion. Many storefronts along Granville Mall are boarded up. Then this report appeared on CBC’s The National last night:
For years the “brilliant minds” at Insite promised us that their way would solve the drug problem in the city. They sought to destroy anyone who suggested that abstinence based treatment programs were the answer.”
