Give free needles to diabetics, not drug users

Sunday , November 12, 2017 - 6:00 AM

Regarding the needle exchange program going on in Ogden, why are we encouraging this? Let’s let all of the diabetics who have multiple injections a day get in line for free syringes also. My Medicare pays for my chem strips and lancets to monitor my blood sugar, but I spend a ridiculous amount for my two different insulins and syringes that I need four times a day, plus the amount I pay each month for my health insurance and Medicare Parts A and B each month. 

If anything, we should be arresting these drug addicts instead of patting them on the head.
