A Vision From Hell

While safe injection sites are not the ultimate answer to the opioid crisis engulfing increasing numbers of people, they at least save lives. Canada has stepped up to the plate in this palliative measure, while the U.S., where the problem is proportionally much greater, lags far behind. Now comes a report that Philadelphia, inspired by the Canadian model, is about to embrace the concept.

The report that follows portrays a hellish existence and makes me realize that people of the middle class like me have little or no conception of the lives of the desperate in our midst.
