.What can we do about the needles on the beach?

“Revamp the needle exchange program. I think it’s crap, because it’s not an exchange—they’re just handing them out.”

“I support the one-for-one needle exchange because I think it would be better than what they have now.”

“They should mark the needles so they’re able to distinguish who received the needle and hold that person accountable in some sort of way, but I don’t know how you do that.”

Aldo Oliviari

“The exchange should be a one-for-one exchange, and that will drive down drug use and disease related to drugs.”

Bernadette Bossinger

“The needle recycle program is really critical—and easy access to the recycle program so that it’s convenient for people who need to exchange their needle. Then they don’t have to do it on the beach.”
