Nation's descent into liberal insanity continues unabated: mayor of Seattle wants taxpayers to fund heroin sites
The mayor of Seattle has formed a "heroin task force." You might think he's trying to motivate his police force to bust sellers. Nope, the mayor is pushing for the city to open "safe-consumption sites" for addicts--"safe-consumption being a wonderful euphemism for places where heroin addicts can shoot up "safely." Funded by taxpayers, of course.
And a majority of the members of this task-force agree. Better yet, they propose to give users clean needles to make it even more convenient to shoot up.
And of course the mayor and his task-force will also require that the "safe-consumption" sites be ready to administer heroin-blocker drugs for users who overdose--again, funded by taxpayers (of course).
If this is a good idea, why stop there? Why not expand the program to included people who are addicted to meth, or cocaine? I mean, if the idea is good for heroin, why isn't it equally good for other drugs too? Looks like a clear case of discrimination!
