Needling San Francisco

The city discovers that facilitating drug use brings with it unintended consequences. With a Tony Bennett bonus!

Who could have predicted this?

San Francisco, in an effort to reduce HIV, hepatitis and other infectious diseases among its rather large population of homeless drug users, has been passing out free syringes for anybody who wants to use them to shoot up. I’m not sure if this has actually helped to slow the spread of these diseases, but it has created a whole other problem.
