New York teaches smokers how to inject heroin

by Blad Tolstoy

In case you thought the story that 49 percent of last year's lung donors in the UK being smokers took the top prize for describing establishment hypocrisy, then think again, for here is another story to rival the former. This time, it's about New York.

Yes, New York, the city of Mayor Bloomberg, the man responsible for introducing its smoking ban, has hit the headlines with its Department of Health spending $32,000 on 70,000 fliers that tell you how to shoot heroin,complete with detailed tips on "prepping the dope" and injecting it into your arm.

Well, why should this be a surprise? Bloomberg is himself an advocate of marijuana and, moreover, it today's anti-smoking politically correct world lunacy rules. You can't smoke but you will receive detailed information
on injecting smack safely. “Warm your body (jump up and down) to show your veins,” and “Find the vein before you try to inject.” The Health Department handout then goes on: “If you don’t ‘register,’ pull out and try again.”

Anyway, read on and snigger...
