Drug injection room on Vesterbro - incentives, grey areas and meaning September 12, 2011 the first Danish drug injection room opened. The project was initiated by private residents residing in Vesterbro, whose aim was to eliminate drug use on the street whilst providing addicts with an opportunity get better conditions, and create an easier route to treatment. In the summer of 2012, following the launch of private initiatives, a bill passed legalizing the drug injection room. This project examines the impact of the drug injection room and explains how it can be presented as an aid for addicts seeking recovery. In addition, the moral and political issues surrounding the drug injection room bill will be ad-dressed. Specifically, it will be discussed if drug injection room is in accordance with UN Narcotic Drug Conventions, whilst possible conflicts with regard to national narcotics legislation will be considered, in addition, the police and the health care staff assigned role will be discussed. Follow-ing this, a discussion will be held as to the justification of legislating with specific regard to a cer-tain societal group. In particular, legislating the right to posses and intake narcotics. This paper draws the conclusion – that regardless of complex grey areas – the drug injection room’s aim is to help a vulnerable group in society to obtain better conditions, and potentially move one step closer to receiving rehabilitative care.
