WACKED-OUT PORTLAND CITY OFFICIALS PASS OUT FLYERS ON HOW TO "SAFELY" TAKE HEROIN

Oh those wacky Pacific Northwesterners. I guess their compassion has just got the best of them. Their concerned about heroin overdoses in their city... So, instead of taking steps to figure out how to eliminate the massive drug problems facing their city, they just inform people how to "safely" shoot up... That's liberalism for ya....
Health officials in Portland, Ore., are taking the unusual step of offering the city's heroin addicts advice on how to shoot up safely after a string of overdose deaths.

Multnomah County health officials sent a memo to various methadone clinics, detoxification facilities and other organizations in the area, telling people who work there of advice they should give to addicts.

[...]

Among the tips in the memo was: "Fix with a friend. If someone goes down, call 911. Any information you can give paramedics about the situation can help save a life, specifically what drugs a person has taken."

Other tips included in the memo were: "Take control of your own drug preparation and intake," and "Do a tester shot — some batches are stronger than others."

Stunningly stupid...
