After watching the https://drugs-forum.com/forum/local_links.php?action=jump&id=1247&catid=39 Video in the files archive, I got an idea for minimising the "blood borne" decease’s associated with heroin addiction: I have installed one of these "special syringes" on his arm, and it's whether easier nor harder to install than using a needle straight to the arm.. Special syringe You can use the same barrel as You uses as normally uses when shooting up with a needle+barrel. Because there's a valve on the top of it which don't allow any blood to come out, decease’s wouldn’t be spread so easily as the get today. The only thing it requires is that it's flushed with saltwater before and after the herion injection. The only downfall with it, as I can see it is that it becomes easier for heroin addicts to maintain their addiction, because instead of 3-4 needles/day, they get away with one every 48-72hour, and that way they don't have to think about their veins being used up.. But if you want "street addicts" to use something, it's hard to make them start using it, if it meens more trouble than they usually go through. So I guess if it wasn't easier than it would be used... But in my opinion that's a small price to pay, to minimise the spreading of HIV and hepatitis, after all the used up veins don't stop all the addicts from continuing shooting up. The biggest problem is probably getting the $$$ to contines the habit I have heard estimates that over 10% of heroin addicts in London had HIV. Which is a LOT of people. Such "special syringes" are availible at SWIM's local drugstore. And if they're not availble where You live, they're probably easy to purchase online Any thoughts?
