New York City offers junkies guide to successfully shooting up

The Bloomberg administration is distributing a 16-page brochure offering heroin users 10 handy tips when it comes to shooting up. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene publication is titled "Take Charge, Take Care," and offers advice on avoiding overdose, preparing your drugs, and taking care of veins in which you inject those illegal narcotics.

Does this seem appropriate to you, considering we're in the middle of a War on Drugs? Maybe they should have a seminar so people can get hands-on training? And they can sell the heroin while they're at it too.
