I am so impressed by Vancouver’s open minded drug reform efforts. They continue to experiment with controversial treatments, but I always feel as though they have the addicts best interests in mind. I recently read the book “In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts” by one of the main influencers in the Supervised Injection Sites in Vancouver, Dr. Gabor Mate. It was written with such love and though he admits that he constantly has to remind himself to be totally accepting of the addicts he works with, at least he proactively tries. That’s more than 99% of the population could say.
