If you haven’t read much about Winston’s needle exchange collective, now is a good time to catch-up on the subject. Perhaps your ignorance is attributable to the Winston-Salem Journal’s failure to adequately cover the topic. While our local paper of record has snoozed, Triad City Beat has given Winston’s needle exchange extensive coverage. On March 1, Jonathan Michel wrote an in-depth article on The Twin City Harm Reduction Collective, a needle exchange program founded by Colin Miller and Erica Mishoe. TCB’s Jordan Green has written two follow-up pieces (1+2) on the Public Safety Committee’s suggestion at Monday’s meeting, that the location of needle exchanges should be regulated by the city.
