Great for San fransisco. Hopefully this can be the start towards a more pragmatic approach, and many other places will follow.
The research is there. Sites like this have run for years in Europe.

Great idea.  We could definitely use  a lot more of these in the US. Unfortunately I think its a pretty tough sell, especially in certain areas...

Here in Denver our local needle exchange was really pushing for a site here locally,  but it got squashed pretty  quickly  from what I understand  :(

I saw the thread recently regarding a clinic in the US not being able to open due to being within a country mile of a school.

My clinic is right next to a primary school. No one seems to notice, or give a fuck. It's literally opposite us, I have to walk past it every fortnight to pick up my script, and I get there just as the kiddies are leaving. Reminds me of my old school days.

Never got this attitude that places of support for addicts are somehow breeding grounds for danger or disease; like we're human garbage or something.

The more HR, the more lives saved, the less crime there is. Bottom line.
