Las Vegas legalizing needle vending machines

I know we could go back and forth forever as to whether this is enabling or a good idea.

There is no doubt that sharing needles spreads diseases like HIV and hepatitis.  Not to mention that a non sterile injection can cause blood or skin infections.  So, theoretically, medically, this is a good idea.  In practice, not always.  Many drug users are not even concerned about a sterile needle.  Getting the drug is their only priority.  Insulin syringes seem to be what's used most.  I guess because legitimate users can get a lot of them, then someone sells them.  A sharp, new, needle works the best also.

Love how the say that a vending machine "removes the stigma" of having to interact with a pharmacist!  A kit will cost $10, unless you're a user - free free free.

As to transgender or body building users, they tend to need a different type of syringe to do it right.  Most of these would be intramuscular injections, requiring a longer needle.  Perhaps a larger syringe too.  So maybe there is a choice!

I really have no objection.  It WOULD prevent disease if done properly, and I'm rather out of caring about this.

I can imagine, that in Vegas, if you hit the jackpot, the hypos will come out preloaded with  a high.
