US DoJ sues to block Philadelphia safe drug-injection site

The US DoJ said on Wednesday it had filed a lawsuit seeking to stop a nonprofit in Philadelphia from opening what could become the nation’s first supervised drug-injection site. The lawsuit targets Safehouse which announced last year it intended to open a facility where drug users under supervision by medically-trained professionals could inject themselves with heroin, fentanyl or other drugs.

It’s better to be a drug user in America than a hungry child.

'safe injection site'? gee, why not just call it house of the imaginary unicorns? addicts need either liberty to do their crap (and accept responsibility for their actions) or be kept under a vigilant eye. These "safe" places to do drugs are ridiculous, a total waste of taxes, it only makes things worst is the evidence we have so far. There will always be a few redemption cases, with or without these ... sure it makes things better for the addicts, and safer, but why is that everybody else's business?
