Russell Brand drops by supervised drug-injection site Insite during his Vancouver visit
Russell Brand brought his Messiah Complex tour to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre this weekend.
But he also managed to find the time to visit Vancouver's supervised-inection site, which he called the city's "crown jewell" on his Twitter feed.
Brand, a former addict who was arrested 12 times, has been an outspoken advocate of abstinence-based drug programs in the U.K.
Like the folks at Insite, Brand thinks addiction must be viewed as a health issue.
Perhaps that's why he referred to Insite cofounder Liz Evans as an "inspiration" in his tweet to his 6,890,533 followers.
