IF A DRUG injecting centre was opened in your area, would you protest against it? 

Drug injecting centres provide addicts with a safer, sterile environment in which to inject heroin, cocaine or other drugs under the supervision of a medical professional.

In the latest episode of our podcast The Explainer, we discuss why the principal of a Dublin primary school doesn’t want such a centre 300m from their front door.

So we’re asking, would you protest against a supervised injection centre in your area?

Poll Results:

Yes (7944)
No (3324)
I don't know (940)
