    I do wonder what liability the City of Ithaca and the State of New York will bare the first time a junky shoots himself up in one of these clinics then leaves and kills someone? The city would be guilty for providing such a "service" and the state would be guilty for ignoring the laws that are being broken.

    I like to smash stolen cars at high speed into bridge abutments.
    Will the state of ny provide a safe place with fully staffed extrication and medical teams so I can perform my illegal, unnecessary activity without fear of legal repercussions?

    Your call. Your responsibility.

    I was born in Ithaca and live about 40 miles away now. One of my favorite bumper stickers: "Sal's old motorcycle Parts in the heart of the Whine Country - Ithaca NY".

    Oh Cool, So now I can make a run up to Ithica and get myself all hooked up on dope. This has been on my bucket list for some time now.

Better than just kicking people to the curb.

    I guess I missed the part where these clinics were going to be providing the free dope along with the needles and a safe zone to be shooting it. If this actually does work out then someone please let the Mayor know I like Beer and Tequila and would like the same free pub.

    Here is a freaking idea. Lock their drug addled asses in a padded room under doctors supervision until whatever time required for the physical addiction passes. On their way out of the padded room hand them the local help wanted section and remind them for the 1 millionth time that drugs are BAD! It is all the wonderfully educated, liberal, dispshits that let emotions such as compassion blind them to reality. I live and work in this town and the only people who DO NOT get a free pass are people who work their asses off and pay taxes. You can take that to the bank.

    Poor drug addicts. You reap what you sew in this life, and they have sewn NOTHING but misery to all those that have ever cared about them.

    I say just make all drugs legal and let nature take it's course. It would be self correcting. There are plenty of poisons to kill yourself with. They have been available for quite sometime and mankind didn't become extinct due to them, even before there were laws against them.

    Laws against drugs are no different than laws against guns; can an inanimate object be inherently evil?
