British Columbia became the first province in the country to decriminalize a certain amount of hard drugs as the country deals with a spike in drug overdoses.

cross-posted from:

British Columbia was granted permission by the government to try out the plan for three years, when the drugs will still be illegal but those carrying less than 2.5 grams will not be arrested, charged or have the drugs confiscated.

Instead, residents carrying the drugs will be offered information on health and social services.
