I think C.W. Nevius hits the nail on the head. Or the thumb on the plunger.
Two months ago I wrote about an idea for a place in San Francisco where intravenous drug users could shoot up under the supervision of trained personnel. A lot of people thought it sounded crazy.
Well, get ready to hear about it again, because the idea is gaining momentum.
On Thursday, an all-day symposium – co-hosted by the city Department of Public Health – will examine the idea of creating safe injection centers where users could bring their drugs, shoot up and leave, without fear of arrest.
I can just hear the stoners now. “Hey, no way am I going to the place where the Man wants me to shoot up!” Such a rebel.
