With safe injection sites becoming more commonplace and government supported, we must have a discussion around the help and harm of these locations. 

In this episode, Jennifer Lynch and Michael Brown discuss: 

  • Where do we draw the line on what an individual can use in these locations?
  • Is there an “off ramp” designed with these safe injection sites?
  • Reflecting on the crack epidemic and its impact on the black community. Will history repeat itself due to these “safe sites?” 
  • The real long term effects of narcotics regardless of if its users can use them safely
  • The legal vs. ethical issue of safe injection sites - do they violate the ""Crack House Statute" of The Controlled Substances Act
