State bill that would allow drug injection centers advances

Somehow I missed this story when it first came out! :confused:
It's a race for 'braggin' rights! :sneaky:

Many California communities could open centers inviting addicts to shoot up hard drugs under a bill that has cleared the state Assembly and now awaits a vote on the Senate floor.

The goal is to reduce deaths. Here’s how the concept — modeled after a supervised drug injection center in Vancouver, British Columbia — works:

A user walks into a government-run clinic with heroin in his pocket. He’s greeted by a nurse who directs him to wash his hands before offering an array of clean needles. He sits down at a sterile booth, rolls up a sleeve and shoots up.

As the high sinks in, he makes his way to a chill-out room for a cup of coffee or juice. There, staff members watch for signs of overdose, prepared to administer life-saving medication if needed.

San Francisco is deep into discussions about opening an injection center.

As can be seen ... It didn't take SF long to capture another voting block!

I thought the way to reduce death by overdose was to get people off drugs.
