I just moved to the area in the last year and was wondering if anyone could answer a question??

I went to the Casino up in Poulsbo and in the bathroom there was a needle box to deposit old needles.

Are there that many diabetics in this area or are these all for drug users???

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts???

There are a lot of diabetics, and not just here, they are everywhere. I think you will find the locked needle boxes more frequently if you look. I've seen them on the ferries, in restuarants, certain stores, etc. I think these are a good idea as they put used needles in a safe place, not in the trash where someone could get hurt. My mother is diabetic and she prefers to go into a bathroom, out of public view, to take her insulin. We appreciate needles boxes as she doesn't have to worry about putting it back in her purse and hauling it home to dipose of.

There's no need to look at a needle box and freak out. A lot of people need them for proper disposal, not just diabetics.

It's unfair of you to assume that there are a lot of drug users around here just because there is a proper receptacle for disposal of used needles.

I was not assuming anything. Which is why I asked the question.

I think it is a good idea to have the boxes and asked the question because I had not seen this in other states.

I was not trying to be rude, just seeking an answer.

And Mary, I was not freaking out. If you read my original post, it was simply a question so CALM DOWN!!!!
