  1. About our work

    larry pasco, Harm Reduction Institute

    3 July 2010

    We in Indiana have always done distribution rather then exchange it much easier , it has caused us some problems with some in the community, but we also provide sharps to users, so for us we direct the states's largest Harm Reduction organization and the largest network of peer to peer exchangers and for 17yrs it has worked.when we did do street exchage it we had so many problems but since allowing users to take care of their needs it is working.It might not be right for all projects .
