The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is using taxpayer money to distribute thousands of “Tips for Safer Use” pamphlets to heroin addicts around the city. How much you wanna bet that Bill O’Reilly dedicates at least one segment of his show to this tonight?
The 16-page pamphlet features helpful tips for dopeheads like: “Warm your body (jump up and down) to show your veins,” and “find your vein before you try to inject.”
Other tips include: “Only ‘boot’ once or twice in one shot.”
The city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene printed about 70,000 copies of the handout.
A health official says the goal is to promote health and save lives.
Assistant Commissioner Daliah Heller says instructions on how to perform injections were included because there is “a less harmful way to inject.”
In the event you have any heroin addict friends you’d like to send the handout to, NBC has a downloadable PDF of it here. Have fun kids!
