That's Not a Paradox, and I'm Not Speaking Right Now
Having admitted long ago that drug addiction exists, and that reducing the incidences of AIDS and hepatitis are good things, the government has decided that giving said addicts a stable and safe location to use the drugs is equal to handing out heroin for free.
No, I'm not kidding.
This is a very selective brand of stupid, one that runs in the same vein (if I may) as "Once an addict, always an addict" and "Lock up anyone I don't like".
People need stability before they can stand up, Mr. Clement. And not everyone has a good laugh looking at those who have fallen.
