I wonder how this elected official "knows" that insulin needles are used 
for illegal drugs? As Michael mentioned, they are probably too thin for 
illegal drug use. It would be nice to have these rants based on facts and 
actual evidence, rather than just personal belief.

In Oregon, you cannot dispose of insulin needles in the trash... the 
garbage people will take them for a $10.00 fee in a special sharps 
container. (It held about 3-4 months worth).
