The Ultimate Drug Scam
Groups and agencies more concerned with more creating nice paying jobs than helping illicit drug addicts
Editor, not proofed
ust a quick note. I don't know who the CHC coordinator is, but kindly forward this comment to that person.
It's nice that you and so many others are
doing a lot for drug addicts. Try quitting smoking. Apparently, kicking the
nicotine habit is far worse than quitting heroin, cocaine or any other
Your illicit drug users whine and cry about being addicted, but you don't see smokers whining and crying and looking for free accommodation and free food. You don't see smokers stealing and ruining the community like useless drug addicts from the "entitled generation" to support their habits. You don't see cigarette users lying at the side of the road using up valuable resources from the RCMP, BCAS and CFD.
I may cover this silly druggie story at some point in the futureóbut from the other side of the fence.
Early this morning, Canadian Tire staff found
20 used syringes on their property. Chilliwack Fire Department dealt with it
as hazmat call. You don't see that with cigarette butts.
Cigarette users can't utilize the same type of resources because tobacco is under the tight controls of gov't and corporations and dealt with nationally. Talk with any local store owner and they will tell you that without cigarette sales their business would struggle.
We're all fed up of this situation with
illicit drug addicts and I can tell you that more people in the community
care about drug addicts than they care about smokers who actually go to work
but have to pay the piper to buy cigarettes and smoke them.
Harm reduction programs for illicit drug
users? Where do you see free cigarettes?
In fact, the nice people in the community
donate to the Food Bank, not because the poor addicts are hungry, but it's
so that these drug addicts don't steal, rob, or hurt them in any way. Yet
even with the community assisting them, Chilliwack has the highest B&E rate
in Canada and why is that?
You can do drugs anywhere. You can't smoke anywhere but on your own private property and most apt. mangers won't even let you smoke in your own suite and threaten to throw you out if you do.
Why do smokers look down on addicts? Because smokers don't get the same services that all drug addicts have access to. All they get is a good case of cancer.
Sardis Library is offering a seminar Friday, November 18, 4 pm - 5 pm about "How to Kick the Sugar Habit: Find out why you crave sugar at certain times. Learn what really works and what doesn't from a Holistic Health Coach."
Yes, I will cover this story, but it will make The Voice more popular with the community than your drug programs and exclusive councilors could ever be. They won't like it that I rail against them. But do I care? As independent media, I could care less.
I don't do editorials much on The Voice. It's not a blog. But it's about time someone said something. For once in your life, try not to look for the bad things from stories like this and look for the good in them.
The real people, the down-to-earth people in the community, are sick of it and I'd prefer if this item was shared with the CHC Breakfast Club there. And please tell them where it came from.
Now put that in your blackened crack pipes and smoke it.
Have a 'nice' day.
PS. Oh and yes, I'll admit it. I'm a struggling addict...to cigarettes, and that makes me a bigger scumbag and second-class citizen than any illicit drug user could ever be.
