By Matthew Cole Scott Posted on June 29, 2016 Share Tweet Share Share Email Comments Revamp the needle exchange program. I think itâ€™s crap, because itâ€™s not an exchangeâ€”theyâ€™re just handing them out. I support the one-for-one needle exchange because I think it would be better than what they have now. They should mark the needles so theyâ€™re able to distinguish who received the needle and hold that person accountable in some sort of way, but I donâ€™t know how you do that. The exchange should be a one-for-one exchange, and that will drive down drug use and disease related to drugs. The needle recycle program is really criticalâ€”and easy access to the recycle program so that itâ€™s convenient for people who need to exchange their needle. Then they donâ€™t have to do it on the beach.
