    This sounds like Amsterdam an Seattle all over again. Nether one worked out but people will still try. The guy who came up with the Amsterdam idea admitted it was a failure Seattle just seems to have made the problem worse at first. Seattle seems to be improving but I'm sure not at the rate they like to happen. The idea is to collect names and help them seek counsel. Good idea about condoms and other things but treatment is still the best road.

    New Haven, CT – New Haven police will be distributing glass “crack” pipes and clean syringes to addicts in an attempt to lower users’ risk of overdosing or contracting HIV.

    Officers often seize and discard such items when making arrests, leaving addicts desperate for a fix when they are released from jail, New Haven Police Chief Otoniel Reyes said during a press conference on Thursday, the New Haven Register reported.

    That desperation can lead them to hastily make unsafe decisions like sharing needles or using equipment they are unfamiliar with, which increases their risk of overdosing or contracting HIV, the New Haven Register reported.

    As a result, the New Haven Police Department (NHPD) will now be gifting clean syringes, condoms, tourniquets, Brillo pads to use as filters for smoking crack cocaine, glass pipes, fentanyl test strips, and other items as part of a “harm reduction kit,” Chief Reyes said.

    “We’re not promoting drug use, New Haven Police Lieutenant Nick Marcucio added. "We’re trying to help them until they’re ready...for treatment."

    The kits will also contain information about treatment options in the city, as well as a numbering system to help track how many users end up seeking help, the New Haven Register reported.

    Signs with information about the kits will be posted in each jail cell so inmates can decide whether or not to ask for one when they’re booked out.

    “While many think that the primary responsibility of police is to protect and enforce the laws, for us in New Haven, the primary responsibility is the protection and the preservation of life,” Chief Reyes told reporters. “Although there are many situations where we have to arrest, we want our people to know that want to we support every individual’s road to recovery.”

    Now they're going to have needles and broken glass everywhere just like in California!

    Bans plastic straws, taxes plastic bags, hands out plastic syringes.

    What about spending that money on rehab or just straight up euthanize these worthless sacks of shit?

    Or making our society as a whole better, with more opportunity for success, so people don't turn to drugs?
