Legal Drug Use In Canada ?

No arrest , nothing happened to the ppl that were filmed . Does this really happen ?
I'd like real life info from anyone who might know in real life rather than what I saw on TV , does this really go on like they showed it , & the ppl doing it are not arrested or anything ?

Here's some info:
I find this most interesting:
Countries where these programmes exist include: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Iran and the United States; however in the United States such programmes may not receive federal funding.

They can also hand in their needles and get clean ones without fear of any criminal charges or hassles from the cops.
Mind you this attempt to manage it doesn't stop there being needles lying on the pavements and stairways or stop junkies from stealing cars or house breaking to fund their habit !!!

The central premise surrounding needle exchanges are to lessen the risks from using shared needles. The central premise behind the 'shooting galleries' are to cut the cost of crime on the community by supplying not only needles but the drug it self and to provide a safe and clean environment for addicts to inject.

Q, I'm Catholic... Junkies are still people and humanly so, and that's what you get when there's Universal Health Care... We all get the same treatment, regardless of background.

Yes FC clearly they are different i thought that would have been self explanitory as one is injected and the other is a liquid distributed by a pharmicist as a substitute for herion but i mentioned it as its a very visible,public occurance in Scotland and quite honestly a waste of money and time.
The figures for 2010 were released last week stating that over 600 babies were born to addicted mothers and inturn born with a heroin dependancy in Scotland in 2010.
May not sound like a lot but its bad for a country this size.We've had a bad drug problem,particularly with heroin here for many years but its getting out of control,legalisation is being discussed again

No they dropped cannibus from a class B to a class C but they got cold feet and put it back up to B with a year or so.
They government and independant experts,some the top Police Officers,health service experts are regularly vocal stating that our current policy on drugs have totally failed and a new approach is badly needed.There may be talks on legalisation of drugs but its a serious vote loser and no party or coalition will seriously entertain the idea,least not till herion starts to rot Middle England.
