Thank goodness.


Hehe yeah I went to HS in very rural PA and we traveled to Philly a few times. Very eye opening experience.


lol wow. i live in philly and played public high school baseball in philly and i dont think ive ever seen a needle on the ground. sure ive seen empty "drug baggies" on the ground but this has nothing to do with potentially deadly discarded needles. what schools were you playing? what school did you go to? i dont really think anything should have been too "eye-opening" for you unless you've never seen low-middle class neighborhoods and run down schools with no funding for uniforms, equipment, etc..

Yeah I forgot how the two where completely unrelated. Where there is smoke there is fire.

Ok sorry snake, maybe "eye opening" was too strong of a description, but regardless I had not seen those little baggies before and there were a lot of them.

what schools were you playing? what school did you go to go? im just curious as to where you saw these things.

and no doubt, most of the baggies are definitely from pot and not heroin.

It certainly won't be a federally funded facility, so local taxes will take care of the building and supplies, and if the guy quoted in the article is to be believed (that 1 in 7 emergency calls that they respond to is for an overdose), it will probably save the community money. I have no idea how much it costs to treat someone for aids, but I bet it cost more to treat someone with aids for 15 years than to run this center for a month.


Thanks, I was curious.

I don't have an exact answer or solution for this, but I don't think providing someone, anyone, with a place to do something illegal is a good idea. Even if we can't agree on the moral ramifications, it sends the wrong message.
