(AmericanProsperity.com) – There is no question that President Joe Biden runs the country in a very unique way compared to former President Donald Trump. Each leader’s approach couldn’t be more different. Now, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is widening that gap by championing safe sites for heroin use.
In a much different approach to the war on drugs, Biden’s DOJ wants to create safe areas for people to inject heroin and use other narcotics. These facilities will also provide overdose protection to prevent people from dying.

Biden’s DOJ says it is currently evaluating the idea of opening these sites. That involves talking with local and state regulators about what rules and restrictions should be in place before implementation. It says the move toward harm reduction is really about public safety, not just saving addicts’ lives.
These safe injection sites are already present in places such as Australia, Europe, and Canada. In addition, new York City already has two available even now.
Advocates of the idea claim these sites can be a way to minimize overdose deaths. Critics, on the other hand, disagree. They say that creating safe zones to use drugs only encourages people in the community to use psychoactive substances, which ultimately allows them to become a burden on the system.
Do you think these “safe zones” are ideal for communities? Or do the critics make a good point? Are Democrats enabling drug use?
