While I completely support an END to the "War On Drugs" this "babysitting" approach is just plain STUPID and counter-productive. Period!

So it's babysitting to attempt to reduce the spread of infectious disease? They`ve also noted a decrease in people injecting, and if you had bothered to read the link, you would also have seen how "the fear that having a safer place to inject keeps people on the needle longer is unfounded."

If you were unable to determine that this was sarcasm prior to this disclaimer, you should reconsider using the internets.

I KNEW there was a reason I like you @HumanAction!
*rubs cheek against @HA*

Note: This is a "cat thing"! And is not in ANY way homosexual!!!!
A male cat can rub his cheek against another male cat... it's perfectly natural!
NOT gay!
Not that I worry about such things...
(In case you haven`t "clued in" by now? I`m making a funny here...)

Teh Stupid! It BURNS!!!

Is it any wonder that junkies from across Canada GO TO VANCOUVER to get:
Cheap heroine
Free Government Drugs

It's a fact! Junkies are junkies! No "Government Program" is going to do SQUAT about that!
Period!

Does anyone here actually think that our drug laws are intended to reduce harm to individuals or society?
