    Throwing free money/stuff at people may make life safer for the rest of us but it hardly addresses the underlying issues behind poverty & addictive.

    Not saying putting people in prisons, mental hospitals or rehab is a valid solution. Giving out free drugs as a temporary measure while providing therapy I could see as having some value.

    This is an improvement. Usual 'solution' to heroin addiction is to get the addict addicted to methadone instead by supplying them that. It is even harder to get off of, but since it can be administered with lower frequency the methadone addict can be a more 'functional' member of society, lining up like a good little citizen at the methadone clinic morning and evening. It also isn't anywhere near as enjoyable so the righteous people who want addicts to suffer are easier to appease when methadone is supplied by the city or state.
