Maryland Citizens Support Clean Needle Exchange
According to a telephone survey by the Center for Substance Abuse Research (CESAR) at the University of Maryland, a majority of Marylanders support the use of needle exchange programs to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS ("Needle Exchange Programs Supported by a Majority of Marylanders," Center for Substance Abuse Research (CESAR), July 25, 1994). The poll shows that 55% of Marylanders support needle exchange programs, while support was even stronger in Baltimore, where 64% of the residents favor such programs.
