A federal judge ruled Tuesday that the nation's first supervised safe injection site can open in South Philadelphia as soon as next week.
Basically. Whatever dealer sold the heroin someone OD’s and dies from are typically quickly overrun with requests from every junkie who knew the no-dead junkie to buy their product. Everyone hears about it and wants to get “the best high.”If a junkie ODs, is it a free for all to see who gets his/her shit?
I'm sure junkies will be junkies.I would rather the safe injection sight sell them the drugs too, than tattoo face down the street getting the money for it.
Most of what I have read claims much better results dealing with addiction the way they do Europe. A general trend of more people using the sights, can't realistically be quantified as a spike in drug use. Getting accurate counts of people using illegal drugs is not really possible.
I wonder how much less it would cost to supervise injections, than for emergency responders running ragged chasing O.D's.
I wonder how much less crime your average addict would commit, if he didn't have to get money to score more H.
I wonder how much less crime we would have, if we removed this lucrative business from the the grasps of the pants draggers.
I wonder how much less ER healthcare we would have to pay for, if they were given clean needles to minimize infections and the passing of disease.
At a wrestling tournament the other day, there were two mothers arguing over which of their kids was a bigger drug dealer, that turned physical. "Dreamers"
The tax payers already pay for a lot of peoples drugs. They either use their EBT cash, or they sell food stamps when they run out. I.E we are funding much of this gang activity through welfare programs both directly and indirectly.
I think it makes sense to put some of this money where it may do less bad. The problem is epidemic, and the solutions to the problem are unknown.
Making a safe place to inject, is not going to make new drug addicts. The people who are going to shoot up, are going to shoot up.
and then they find all those free needles all over the parks where kids play, in the streets, etc.I believe Seattle does something close to this but the cost for the needles was over a million dollars, which I would guess comes from you know who --- TAX PAYERS!!!!
The population is up greatly over the last ten years. Also you can count junkies when they show up to safe injection sights. Takes guess work and lying out of the equation a little more. Off the top of my head. Can you show me the statics you are using, so I can get some frame of reference, to take the guess work out of my answer.I'm sure junkies will be junkies.
If there aren't new practicioners why are the numbers up greatly in the last ten years?
Rewarding bad behavior will always garner more.
You can not collect disability for drug addiction.Already happens. Many of them are on disability because we'll, drug addiction is s disease don't you know.
Well then I'm stumped at how the two able bodied drug addicts I know, get a disability check, but they do.You can not collect disability for drug addiction.
Although drug addiction often substantially impairs a person's ability to work, an applicant will not be approved for disability on the basis of the drug addiction.www.disabilitysecrets.com
These go together as once the prescriptions stop they usually turn to street offeringsThe population is up greatly over the last ten years.

There are reasons people get addicted to drugs. I don't know what the solutions are. I know the people I have listened to claim much higher recovery rates in the system they are using parts of europe, with state funded shoot up places, that also have counselors and treatment centers. I don't know what statistics they used either.
I think you are arguing with me about the one part of this we agree about. That is that the problem is empidemic right now.These go together as once the prescriptions stop they usually turn to street offerings

While info isn't as current as I'd like it paints the picture.
Have a few friends and family members that deal with the seekers and the narcan
candidates on the street.
So, basically find a crooked doctor and lawyer that will say what ever.....Figures.Well then I'm stumped at how the two able bodied drug addicts I know, get a disability check, but they do.
Yes they can:
"This does not mean that you cannot win approval for a physical or mental condition that was caused by a drug addiction."
That's the thing. I have a lot of things wrong with me, but substance abuse isn't one of them.So, basically find a crooked doctor and lawyer that will say what ever.....Figures.
