    A strong majority of illicit drug users in Vancouver say they can score crack or crystal meth within minutes, suggests the findings of a 10-year study by an independent B.C. health research group.

    The report, released at a news conference in Vancouver yesterday, revealed that 90% of respondents said they could obtain crack or cocaine within 10 minutes.

    Sixty per cent of street youth said they would be able to score crystal meth in the same period of time.

    Crystal meth is a highly addictive and potent stimulant that is usually snorted or injected.

    "These are mainly street youth in the city's west end and it's not so much a portrait of the suburbs or kids in high school," said Dr. Evan Wood, a spokesman for the Urban Health Research Initiative at the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, which published the study.

    Dr. Wood said the numbers from the study show Vancouver is losing its war on drugs.

    They have got some crazy shit in vancouver if you know where to get it which makes it the greatest place on earth.

    SWIMS friend just went to vancouver to stay at his brothers who sells crack. His brother doesn't do crack but says if he needs anything he can just tell one of the people who buy crack from him he'll give them a $xxxxxxxrock and he can get whatever he wants.

    Swim would have no problem believing that one! She loves Vancouver, it's her favorite city, but there is definitely VERY easy access to drugs of all kinds, which is awesome for her and her friends when they want to party but addiction is a huge problem in the city as a result of it. As long as there are users there will be dealers and as long as there are dealers there will be users, which makes it a tough situation :thumbsdown:
