Campaign for a Healthier New Jersey Executive Summary
The time to act is now. New Jersey is losing thousands of lives and millions of dollars to totally preventable diseases. By allowing for non-prescription sale of syringes, New Jersey will permit those at risk of injection-related diseases to protect their own health by purchasing sterile syringes in pharmacies, and make access to syringes easier for diabetics and others who must use injectable medications.
The Campaign for a Healthier New Jersey supports New Jersey Senate Bill No. 958 and Assembly Bill No.1088 which would allow for the sale of limited numbers of syringes in pharmacies without a prescription.
