Canadian Federal Prison Poised To Introduce Heroin Injection Site For Inmates

A federal prison in the Canadian province of Alberta is reportedly ready to begin the first supervised drug injection site for prisoners.

Supervised inflection sites already dot the Canadian urban landscape with numerous programs in operation in cities from Vancouver to Toronto. The sites allow drug addicts to inject themselves with heroin — illegal anywhere in Canada — without fear of police intervention.

The Trudeau government apparently wants to bring that convenience to prison.

The first such site in North America was opened in 2003 in Vancouver, B.C., a city that is currently experiencing record high levels of heroin and opioid overdoses, despite the original facility, and a second, being in operation. Vancouver is also looking at decriminalizing heroin use in a controversial attempt at reducing drug deaths.


ME: How could this happen? You mean when we made it easier for drug addicts to inject themselves, drug deaths went up? I see no correlation here.

Of course, they probably left the world feeling pretty good, hopefully just as good on the other side, but who knows. I often thought it is a good idea to leave this world in a clear state of mind, knowing every second what's happening to you, as you wake into a new life, as a spiritual entity.

Gee, we wouldn't want prisoners to feel as if they are being punished.
