B.C. heroin addicts still without prescription heroin despite Health Canada permission
Six months after getting Health Canada’s permission to use prescription heroin, a group of B.C. drug addicts are still waiting to receive what many professionals deem crucial supplies of the drug.
Providence Health, the organization approved to distribute the heroin, told iPolitics they have yet to receive the drug, despite placing an order with the manufacturer several months ago.
