Re: “Enabling or a Lifeline?

In my opinion it is not a bad idea. No, it won't cure anybody, but it will in effect warehouse them and keep their bad habits off the street at least for a percentage of the day. By their choices they have taken themselves out of our productive society, so the next best thing is to put them somewhere where they can't hurt themselves or others. I know that sounds heartless, and I do have sympathy for folks addicted to drugs, and I wish them well. Keeping them safe and away from vulnerable members of our society is a bad solution to a worse problem. At least with clean needles and surroundings they will be less likely to act as a reservoir for diseases.
