easily defeated because most people have about 10 fingers so you just use a different fingerprint when the machine 'cuts you off'

Man, I'm surprised they'll shoot you with meth at those places... seems like a huge liability having tweakers come in looking to reup a bender

Yes, that's what differentiates this program from other programs like morphine treatment. Other treatments are given at the pharmacies, and must be swallowed on the spot.
These pills are specifically made for crushing up and injecting. Back in the day hospitals would do the same, crush pills to inject. Should be safe. Otherwise people who like injecting are still going to go buy fent and the program will miss it's goal. Which it'll miss anyways because it's targeting the wrong people. All adults must have access to clean opiates if we're to get rid of fent.

I mean... This is a good start to ending prohibition on drugs, however... Why would you, knowing that people STILL are going to inject, provide them with an oral pill form? Why not just provide the shit straight up, ready to IV as one would find in a hospital? It'd sterile, clean, and well... You'd have less issues in the event of a miss causing abcesses from unsanitary water, cookers and the like which could occur. If done how I suggested, all one would need to worry about is a clean rig and property prepping the skin prior to injection...
Also, if people had this all available (cheap, clean drugs, ready to IV, prepped sterile) I'd think that just providing long term users safe ports or PICC lines to inject (you'd be using safe clean sterile drugs manufactured for the purpose of IVing... Then it just falls to the user to properly and sanitarily inject the drug into the line as one would if in a hospital- proper cleanliness procedures being taught obviously... That would be the way to go to avoid users of destroying their cardiovascular system with misses, over use of veins, and abcesses forming from said misses etc.
I had a resident doctor at Hopkins whom took a shine to me, have this very discussion... He agreed. There is a large number of users who's only real issue with using is the legality factor, not being able to get employment due to legality factors, being made criminals just for being a users, etc.. when it'd just make more sense to let them live and let live, do their shit, and promote them doing as safely as possible.
Also, while I don't condone stealing to take care of a habit, getting rid of the artificial inflation of drugs would help a lot in terms of crime with users... Typically people don't need to steal to maintain an alcohol addiction because well... Beer and liquor are pretty cheap... It'd ruin the cartels too.. cutting them off at the balls. A lot less crime would exist due to legalization.
Also I am very much in support of people being responsible for what the fuck they do. That's one reason a lot of addicts don't want legalization lol. They like to blame their fuck ups and shit decisions on their addiction rather than themselves.
