NY City Council bill would pay drug users to return used needles

Socialist and progressive city council members are looking to advance a bill that would pay drug users to return spent paraphernalia as the number of discarded needles in New York City has more than doubled over the last year.

The proposed cash-for-addicts program “would authorize the [Department of Health and Mental Hygiene] to set the buyback incentive, up to 20 cents per needle, syringe or sharp, with a cap of $10 per individual per day,” according to the legislation. The one-year pilot program would then be evaluated by DOHMH which would then decide whether to make it a permanent part of city life.
