But this is something that the higher population areas do have to deal with.

So does that mean you dislike seat belt/motorcycle helmet laws? Those are a couple of the biggest scams ever pulled on us. They are the exact definition of a victim less crime except for self. This not so much.

Damn, I was hoping this thread was about some new, safer injection molding process or something....

But, no...it’s exactly what I thought it would be.

They'd be better charging a fee. Why should anyone subsidize someone's habit—especially in an enabling way? Don't agree with that.

Besides I thought the left said we're overpopulated. This is where survival of the fittest should rule.

You should boycott.

Holy crap that state is a disaster. :facepalm:

Don't you think it is better than shooting up in public and dying in the streets? Plus it sounds like it may save them money.

It’s a legitimate worry. Today’s San Francisco is one big unsafe injection site, as many of the city’s estimated 22,000 intravenous drug users openly shoot up in plazas, parks and public transit stations with no consequence, often strewing their dirty needles around them. It’s become the norm to see people on our sidewalks in broad daylight sticking needles in just about every body part.

The safe injection sites could mean fewer dirty needles on the streets, since they’d be collected inside. Public health officials believe that 85 percent of the city’s intravenous drug users would use safe injection sites and that the city could save $3.5 million a year in medical costs.

That paragraph states that this is being done with private funds. And when did you become a social Darwinist?

It's been awhile since I've binge-watched "The Wire," but I can't help but feel like I've seen this plot before.

You know, at least in Missouri. If you get a seat belt/motorcycle ticket that you forget to or don't pay, you sit in the clink until it's paid. I don't mean to be argumentative or anything, just wanted to see where you stand on a similar crime. And much, much less harmful on society :Peace:

That incarceration is for refusing to pay money to the State. That's a whole new kettle of fish.

Actually, no I don't. I am good with Commiefornia doing anything they want as a general rule. But as I eluded to with BEP, it never stops there. This privately paid for opium den will be touted as "working wonderfully" in Commiefornia and we should look at doing it nationwide. But of course, we are going to need funding. The American taxpayer would "love" to pay for that because "that's just who we are". Any of this ringing a bell.

This is a liberals wet dream, a scam that portray's junkies as more important than American taxpayers. All they need is to get their toe in the door, and then like Obummer care "we can't take this away from the junkies, THEY DESERVE IT!!! Of course, Commiefornia can and will do what they want, and the rest of us will bend over and like it, but I can and will call out the bullshit!

Damn, I hate the liberal agenda! But I'm getting to really dislike the people that fall for it time and time again just about as much :shake:

I think it's a pretty damn good idea. Should make the people that are going there enroll in drug therapy though.

Gay guys openly hitting on you.

This would make sense.

I saw that street a couple of blocks away and turned around and went the other direction. The vast majority of the city has homeless people, but not like you describe.

If your son or daughter was an addict I guarantee you would want them shooting up in a place like this rather than on the street. Gives them more time to change their ways before they die.
