    Yes, I am very familiar with the world of microbes and their transmission routes. HIV isn't as easy to acquire as some people believe.

    If the burger chef is getting his blood on my burger, then he needs another inservice in food prep for the public.

    Using dirty needles is only one of the methods someone can contract diseases.Just because someone has HIV doesn't mean they got it through doing intravenous drugs, having sex with someone who uses intravenous drugs or having sex with someone who has had sex with someone who uses intravenous drugs and so on.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You'd still have people who can't afford to pay for drug paraphernalia using dirty needles. It won't improve things at all and it won't solve the problem.

    We shouldn't support them then either. They can drop dead and solve the problem.

    Even if they did that, they'd be a vector for infection until they did. Not all addicts are dirty, raddled near-corpses. Many pass as colleagues and friends. Some make a living selling their services, and pass the infection to customers who take it home to their partner.

    We've done that for decades now. What do you suggest we do about that?
    Well considering 20% of those infected with HIV in America dont actually know that they are infected, through the spread of this infection with sex, my point stands - this poses an inevitable threat to society as a whole if the situation isnt addressed starting from one of the primary reasons people get HIV - dirty needles.

    Thats where the syringe exchange program comes in. And the ignoramus elite in congress believe ignoring the situation rectifies is.

    Whether a majority of prisoners are drug users or not is irrelevant. They aren't in prison for using drugs.

    Personally, I support legalizing drugs and ending all public support of junkies. Let them do their drugs and live independently. If they wish to be career criminals, so be it.
