B.C. health officer urges province to decriminalize drug possession

B.C.'s provincial health officer Bonnie Henry urges province to decriminalize possession of drugs to fight an overdose crisis that has already killed thousands. Henry says decriminalization is a way to protect people from highly toxic street drugs and will allow police to help people living with addictions connect to the support they need.
