B.C. Mayoral Candidate Suggests Using Crack As Incentive For Addicted Homeless

B.C. Mayoral Candidate Suggests Using Crack As Incentive For Addicted Homeless

POSTED: 10:48 am PST November 14, 2005

KELOWNA, B.C. -- A candidate in the mayoral race in Kelowna, B.C. suggests using crack to deal with the city's drug-addicted homeless people.

Andrew Uitvlugt says crack could be used as a reward or incentive to motivate people to do constructive work in the city, like picking up garbage.

Once they've done their duties, he figures the addicts will feel so good about themselves, they may not need the crack, or less of it.

You can hear his comments in a video campaign pitch on the website okbc.tv.

The candidate also wants to move the homeless to a combined shelter and retraining center at the city dump.

He says they could use the available materials to build things and get marketable skills.

Uitvlugt is one of the five candidates running in the November 19th municipal election.

City to hand out crack kits

OTTAWA - In a move designed to reduce the spread of HIV and hepatitis C among drug users, the city will distribute free crack-pipe kits starting tomorrow. Ottawa has the second-highest rate in the country for HIV. A city health officer said that hepatitis can be transmitted easily if an infected user with cracked lips - a hallmark of crack smokers - shares a pipe with someone with cracked lips. The kit includes a pipe, aluminum caps, alcohol swabs, hand wipes and lip balm.

They must be pretty desperate about the HIV situation to try something like that (give out crack pipes).

Marion Berry smoking crack is one of my favorite pictures of ALL time!  I am going to have it be my signature one of these days.
