Free alcohol makes homeless healthier, safer

"Giving homeless alcoholics a regular supply of booze may improve their health and their behaviour, the Canadian Medical Association Journal said in a study published today."

Probably makes them happier too... I mean hey, free booze!

One part that I found troubling was that "Three of the 17 participants died during the program, succumbing to alcohol-related illnesses that might have killed them anyway."

Hmmm. I wonder if giving them 15 drinks a day may have helped that along.

Well, I guess the Canadians have it all figured out with their national health program.....

I have a question though, what about the Herion addicts? Do they get free Herion? If not, that just isn't fair.

The homeless alcoholics should all be used for medical testing, IMO. The ones in Canada, anyway. :-)

Dr. Fong, lets move to Canada and bum around on the streets to see if they give us free cannabis!

You in? Of course we would demand free housing and free broadband internet access too, so you could keep up with the blog.....

Dr. Fong said...

I think broadband internet should be a human right. Everyone deserves to blog!

Osiris said...

Hey, sorry I spelled Heroin wrong in my previous blog, I'm SO drunk on free canadian booze right now!

DR FONG ANSWER my question!! You in or not? Thnk of it, free Canadian cannabis..... You know you're interested!

We can tell the Canadian Government we are political prisoners attempting to flee the United States.

It's a little cold up there for me this time of year. Ask me again in April.

Osiris said...

You won't even notice the cold! Between this vicious free booze and free smoke, we will be SET!

We won't be one of the subjects that die.....

Man, I'm so wasted on free canadian booze right now, nothing can hurt me!

Is it just my imagination, or is that Chistopher Lloyd?

If they start passing out free cannabis I may have to join you in making a run for the border.

Osiris said...

Yes, Chris, let us put our differences behind us and make a border run together. Enough of the petty bickering, we shall join forces and storm the Canadian border and take over the socialist system. You in? As you can already see, Christopher Lloyd is in.....
