Arizona legalises syringe service programmes

The Arizona state governor has passed a bill legalising syringe service programmes. This means that organisations will now be permitted to set up and facilitate overdose and blood-borne disease prevention services. The bill also permits the distribution of the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone. Arizona is one of the last states to legalise syringe service programmes.
