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.

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.
