From an ODE Q&A on HIV
If I do inject drugs, how can I protect myself from getting HIV?
You can buy needles in Oregon without a prescription, or you can use a needle exchange program. If you are going to share, learn how to clean the needles with bleach.
and just in case we aren't totally clear:
What is the ratio of bleach and water needed to kill HIV?
1:100 will kill HIV on a flat surface, but a solution of 1 part bleach and 9 parts cool water is recommended because it also kills Hepatitis B. On difficult-to-clean objects (for example, inside a syringe), full-strength bleach is recommended
"If you are going to share..." What?!?!?! This is the moral relativism that has taken over. Imagine, "if you are going to rape someone please be considerate and wear a condom..."
It's no wonder that unions are scared to death of school choice, who would want their kids anywhere near someone who teaches kids how to properly share heroin needes.
For those of you who didn't catch it today, there has been a suggestion that everyone age thirteen and over get tested regularly for HIV. Cause you know, we are all at risk... not just the gays who frequent bathhouses and the folks who learned how to share needles in the public schools.
