A local user in my neighborhood and I stopped and talked about how difficult it is to get fresh sharps in Seattle. The King County Department of Health is struggling to keep their budget up to offer fresh sharps. Since they have cut programs in the area there have been FAR more documented cases of Hepatitis C and heroin related overdoses by the Seattle Fire Department and local EMTs. Please support harm reduction. Carry around a bag of fresh sharps and hand them out. Promote a bias free approach to harm reduction and public health. Disease is preventable and a simple fresh sharp can keep disease control to a minimum. If you see someone nodding out, ask if they have clean sharps and fresh cook sets. You can get these for pennies on the dollar and help promote healthy habits for users in your neighborhood.
