So goes tax money.

New York’s Department of Health has spent $32,000 for 70,000 leaflets depicting how to shoot up.

There are even comic-like drawings to help those not all that adept at reading words, per Brad Hamilton of the New York Post.

Things are really getting cozy with crime when that kind of money is forked out for that kind of pastime.

"It's basically step-by- step instruction on how to inject a poison," said John Gilbride, who heads the Drug Enforcement Administration's New York office.

"It's sick," said City Council member Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Queens)

"Foolish," said Columbia University drug researcher and treatment expert Dr. Herbert Kleber.

When the nation flies liberal off the charts, moral baselines become increasingly twisted so that now we have the next generation instructed in how to blow themselves away with a needle.

Leaflets’ elementary language gives the ‘cut on dotted line’ instruction: "Warm your body (jump up and down) to show your veins," and "Find the vein before you try to inject."

More New York adolescents are into heroin than ever before. So how do we cut the figures to a minimum? Health Department officials obviously conclude that making it easier to insert the needle will do it.

Crazy world makes crazy world crazier.
