is something incongruous about this headline ?:

First U.S. drug injection center aims to lead way on overdoses?

While I see the reasoning behind such programs I don't think assisting them in their destructive behavior is the best way to help them, unless the it's conditional upon an effort to overcome the habit, a condition these places don't have as far as I know.. And do taxpayers want to fund such centers? I don't think so.

Rehab centers yes, drug use assistance centers no.

I would be open minded supporting innovative approaches, keeping data and further funding those methods that work the best. Whatever they are doing in San Francisco is definitely not working.

Desperate measures to control part of the consequences of a social and economic problem that keep fueling drug addiction in the US, this may not be doing much to solve the main problem, but every life saved is something positive.
