I am all about safe injection sites but shouldn't they be "user" pay. I don't think the entire populations tax dollars should be used to operate these modern day drug dens. As a young parent I would hope that my children would confide in me before using drugs so I could have the opertunity to show them what it can do to you and what a foolish waste of time and money it is. Time is the most valuble assest any one of us have and to waste it by stuffing a needle in your arm is something the general public should not have to subsidies.

I disagree, I do not think it is right to lend a helping hend so to speak, or to encourage being a Junkie, that is all they are.
