Thanks for this great article, Indy Week! It's remarkable that in this legislative climate a bill like this could pass the legislature with such overwhelming bi-partisan support. It might be only a small step, but it's definitely a step forward. It takes about 30 seconds for a law enforcement officer and a community member to have a conversation about syringe or sharps possession. By taking the pressure off of that interaction, this law helps both people in that situation avoid a number of unnecessary and negative outcomes.
