Argument; Needle exchanges only enable and encourage drug addicts
Aaron Lawrence. "Why a Needle-Exchange Program is a Bad Idea". Record. August 26, 2005: "GIVING clean needles to addicts is no way to solve the drug problems that plague our society. So the court decision last week to block such a program is OK with me. Needle programs only help drug addicts stay high."
Sen. Ronald Rice (D-Essex): "You can't keep people junkies all their lives."
