State bill that would allow drug injection centers advances
« on: March 02, 2018, 11:08:41 PM »
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!
(less than a year) :thumbsup:

SF safe injection sites expected to be first in nation, open around July 1

The goal is to reduce deaths.

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