Opinions about syringe exchange?
Opinions about syringe exchange?

I'm part of a team working on a grant to expand the fledgling syringe exchange program we have in my county, under the recent state legalization. This grant - from the State Office of AIDS - looks to expand access to syringe exchange and strengthen the network of established, legal programs across the state.

Your comments would be appreciated. They will go no farther than here, of course, but I realized there's a wealth of opinion here I overlooked. It'd be good to hear what folks think.

(I'm going to request this thread be locked Thursday afternoon - we are "overnighting" the grant to Sacramento then, to meet the Friday deadline.)

Thanks a lot,

pinto

1. I fully support needle exchange programs.
Where I work, we come from a harm reduction background. Needle exchange programs help stop the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C. Therefore, I have no problem with them.

Good luck with the grant. And keep up the great work.

2. I think it's a great idea.
What a simple tool in helping the spread of A.I.D.S.
