What a waste of taxpayers' dollars safe injection sites are -- and every 
other moral controlling enterprise the state engages in. It is not the duty 
of the state to control people who like to use drugs.

How about this: strike down every drug law including patents, 
prescriptions, and prohibition. Without the laws, drugs would be chemicals 
no different than candy at about the same price.

When cocaine costs the same as coffee, I expect the so-called addicts will 
be able to afford all the needles they want. When they have satisfied their 
lust and have gluttoned themselves out, they will return to the mainstream 
without criminal records.

When taxpayers start minding their own business, perhaps there will be some 
money to do what is the primary function of the state -- protect us from 
force or fraud.
