  •  I despise drug addiction (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    but needle exchange programs are necessary for public health. it's that straightforward. Nothng to do with treating druggie losers(sorry, but I tend to judge them harshly) for free. It has everything to do with curbing the spread of deadly diseases. Obviously, you do not want to have a drug addict pay for his bad choice with HIV infection. So I understand the humane component.

    I just had to say it because I wanted to show any right wingers who might read this diary as we have a diversity of opinion on druggie addicts and we all tend to support such a program .
