    I'm sure that many are just using the treatment centers to scam shelter and food; I still don't think providing places for addicts to shoot up is the right answer.

    That’s a very vague and broad statement. Next time a cop tells you to stop, answer a question, move out of the way etc,etc. Just totally disobey him/her. See how that works out for you.

    When did I mention any other country? I think you’re projecting something on my comment that’s not there.

    Nice sidestep. I live in an area where they are putting in a needle exchange. Luckily I rent. I'd hate to be a homeowner and have my property value take a shit because of this crap.

    Exchange programs are put in place in areas that already have high incidence of street use. It contains many negative consequences from effecting the public at large. Do you prefer them shooting up in the subway or public bathrooms?

    I prefer them in a treatment center or jail.

    If you can't function in society well enough to keep a roof over your head to shoot up in private then you should be in 1 of the 2.

    take a look at NYC in the 70's to see how that works out. Junkies will go through a revolving door in detainment and end up on the street again- often in a worse and more desperate situation. Unless you are proposing longer sentences for them to clog up our already strained prison system?

    So you are fine with them shooting up in public spaces near you, in the restrooms of area businesses, in the restroom of the library and other public buildings?

    No I want them to do it in the privacy of their own home.

    Homeless people are a nuisance whether they are intravenous drug users or not.

    I think if you're caught shooting up in public you should be arrested, convicted, treated, and then given support to re enter society. If you fuck it up again, they should just institutionalize you away from society.

    The idea is to keep the public at large safe. There's always a price attached to it.

    They may not have a home. They are too messed up to just do it in their home.
    Your last paragraph partially says what I have been saying here, namely that they get treatment and support. So what are you arguing about?

    stop pretending you give a shit about the law when you only care when it conflicts with your own backwards worldview.

    God demands we keep the sabbath holy and refrain from all work. Yet millions of public employees work on the sabbath. Where is the Christian outrage and civil disobedience there?

    I never said you mentioned any other country. You original comment was BECAUSE you weren’t comparing the US to other countries.
