I know, the ideal solution would be to have everybody quitting drugs, especially such hard ones as heroin. However, it seems that the criminalization leads to very unsafe practices and the users, because of this, don't get a chance to quit properly many times, as their lives fall in shambles and they catch AIDS or other viruses. It is also very unsafe for our kids to walk in parks if the addicts could have left needles around. I would prefer that we would have safe centers where the addicts could come and get safe materials to shoot rather than infected needles. It feels like it would save a lot of lives, and I don't think it would be encouraging drug users to use, or that it would promote drugs; the way I see it, it would just make sure that they would have a safe place to go and people who want to reach them and help them out could do that with better resources. They could be found, instead of being lost hiding.
