Letter: Safe injection sites

There are far too many innocents born sick and could only wish to have the chance at life that so many healthy people toss away?

Just when I thought I heard it all now this.

Whoopteedoo — overdose prevention site opening in Kelowna Tuesday to Saturday, from noon to 7.30 p.m.

The site will be open seven and a half hours, five days a week allowing drug addicts near by the choice of where and when help is available to reverse their sickly crawl toward death after a shoot up?

Any user outside of the area please phone 911 and make an appointment.

My question is, where do many of these people that shoot the needle instead of the breeze get the money to obtain the killer drug fentanyl and all that other stuff?

Let me guess, could it be government assistance that user’s depend on for the means to obtain that fix or money obtained from criminal behaviour?

No money, no drugs but for those hell bent on destroying their god given life I say go for it, as the saying goes, you will go home to a better world so please one of you departed let us know if you need company in the new drug free utopia, namely heaven?

There are far too many innocents born sick and could only wish to have the chance at life that so many healthy people toss away?
