Supervisor Jim Desmond -Free Needles And Crack Pipes?

In 2021, the Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to create a “Harm Reduction Program”. Part of that proposal included a Syringe Services Program, which essentially gives free drug paraphernalia to San Diegans. I was one of the dissenting votes, primarily because I don’t believe enabling drug use will get people the help they need. The majority of people living on our streets are addicted to drugs and alcohol, and promoting drug use will only perpetuate the problem.

The County of San Diego is pursuing a harm reduction program, including syringe services and safer smoking supplies, through the California Department of Public Health. 

This potential program involves, in part, the distribution of free needles and various other drug paraphernalia, and includes:

  • Sterile syringes
  • Personal sharps disposal containers
  • Condoms and lube packets with instructions
  • Safer smoking supplies (including pipe covers, mouthpieces, foil sheets, clean glass stems, and bubblers)
