Supervised drug consumption sites are causing more harm than the help they are allegedly providing. In cities where these sites have opened, they have attracted crime and ultimately failed to address the causes of overdose and addiction.

Key points:

  1. Supervised drug consumption sites are illegal by federal law, but NGOs continue to try to open them.
  2. Research supporting the effectiveness of SDCSs lack sufficient methodology to support their claims.
  3. SDCSs fail to address the root of drug addiction and support dangerous drug use.
