THANK YOU City of Des Moines for rejecting! After reading this blog and hearing so many perspectives on this subject, including Vancouver’s site, my heart does go out to the addicts and their families. The bottom line is that this drug use is illegal and legal places to practice illegal drug use is just unacceptable. There are paths to sobriety if someone really wants it and that is the key here. We cannot ignore there is certainly a mental health issue to be addressed with addicts who live on the streets. The answer is not to continue to enable people by giving them resources and NO accountability to change their lives. I have a dear friend who is a psychiatrist for Seattle Mental Health. Sure would like to see resources directed toward mental health and NOT to giving addicts a place to make excuses for their addiction and use of illegal drugs.
A subcutaneous injection is administered as a bolus into the subcutis ,  the layer of skin directly below the dermis and epidermis , collectively referred to as the cutis . Subcutaneous injections are highly effective in administering vaccines and medications such as insulin , morphine , diacetylmorphine and goserelin . Subcutaneous, as opposed to intravenous, injection of recreational drugs is referred to as " skin popping ". Subcutaneous administration may be abbreviated as SC , SQ , sub-cu , sub-Q , SubQ , or subcut. Subcut is the preferred abbreviation for patient safety.
