Syringe-swap activists handed citations
Don Finley: Express-News
Legislation passed last year authorized local health officials to organize a pilot syringe exchange program in Bexar County. It would be the first legally sanctioned program in Texas.
The program is stalled since the district attorney declared her view that the legislation authorizing it is faulty. Both sides await an opinion from the attorney general's office.
Day declined to elaborate on the specifics of the arrest, except to say the police report had errors.
Advocates say Texas is the only state without some legally authorized program.
