This story just makes me sick at my stomach.
SAN FRANCISCO — City health officials and addiction experts took the first steps Thursday toward opening the nation’s only government-sponsored injection room that would give drug addicts a safe, clean place to shoot up.
Hoping to reduce San Francisco’s high rate of fatal drug overdoses, the local public health department co-sponsored a symposium on the only such facility in North America, a 4-year-old Vancouver site where an estimated 700 users a day self-administer narcotics under the supervision of nurses.
Oh God. We’re reduced to this? I don’t think this one merits much further discussion. Just consider that this is happening in the Congressional district represented by Nancy Pelosi. Considering her popularity there, it says a lot about the values that she might harbor. Disgusting!
