The war on drugs has never been won by anyone, anywhere. But Jason
Kenny figures that it can be won here in Alberta by stricter law
enforcement and by limiting safe injection sites.

He is against safe injection sites, because in his conservative way of
thinking, they promote the use of drugs. Nothing could be farther from
the truth. Safe injection sites help save lives.

On the street, drug addicts can be exposed to bad batches of drugs or
they can be thrown in jail for possession of illegal drugs. I'm quite
sure addicts are not happy they have to resort to safe injection sites
to get their fix.

And by going to safe injection sites, they are not demonized for being
addicts and they can go to these places so that they can get off their
dependence on drugs for good.
