A new technique of battling drug use will open up for the first time in the U.S. This technique is none other than the controversial safe injection facilities. Two of these are planned to be built in Seattle and King County, Washington. The purpose of these sites is to offer a supervised and safe place for addicts to using illegal drugs. However, safe injection sites in other countries have already shown amazing results that would prove useful during the growing heroin epidemic in cities like Seattle. These facilities offer users space and clean needles for when they utilize the drugs. Also, nurses are monitoring the users and can give anyone who overdoses the remedy to save their life. One SIF in Vancouver has been visited 3.5 million times since its opening in 2003. This facility has had nurses cure 5000 overdoses, and there have been no deaths. What are your feelings towards these facilities?

    I think these safe injections will help the “heroin epidemic in cities like Seattle.”
