A tale of two cities…

Two recent articles about harm reduction plans in two cities.

I have lots of thoughts, but here’s one quick one about the San Francisco story. Placing an injection center in the area with the highest OD rates seems obvious. But, would such a program (As opposed to a recovery oriented program.) further institutionalize addiction in this struggling community? Also, I’ve heard that the Tenderloin district is becoming gentrified. What might this do to plans for an injection center? What does that say about treatment of socio-economic classes?
