The National Commission on AIDS has suggested that addicts be given access to needles, a move the federal advisory group hopes would stop the spread of AIDS. In Baltimore, one of four addicts are infected with the HIV virus, which is transmitted by sharing dirty needles or through sexual contact.
The Evening Sun would like your opinion on the recommendation. Should addicts be given access to sterile needles? Do you think it would prevent the spread of the disease? Do you think it would promote drug abuse?
