# Injection rooms questionned for Paris

According to an article published in French newspaper Liberation, Paris' authority is currently studying a possible construction of injection rooms which would allow drug users to take heroin in safer conditions than the usual ones experienced. This kind of rooms already exist in Australia, Switzerland, Netherlands, Spain, Germany... and provides an hygienic equipment and environment for drug users.
I am a bit suspicious about them though; obviously not for the usual reason invoked which is to say that it will make the drug consumption increasing, but rather bothered by the fact that it could therefore become an easy institutional way of controlling drug users which is always a dangerous thing...

You can also read an old article from the BBC about Switzerland's injection rooms.
