DEA: NYC Heroin Guide Instructs “How To Inject A Poison”


A New York City guidebook for heroin users offers information on how to prepare drugs carefully and care for veins to avoid infection. The Associated Press reports that John Gilbride, agent in charge with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration calls the “Take Charge Take Care” guide a “step-by-step instruction on how to inject a poison.”

The city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene printed 70,000 copies. Assistant Health Commissioner Daliah Heller says the goal is to promote health and save lives, noting that instructions on how to perform injections were included because there’s “a less harmful way to inject.”
