    Liberals call this progress. It’s a really awesome degenerate lowest common denominator progressive society for raising children.

    So y’all just gonna pretend like you don’t know there’s an opioid crisis happening?

    A 30 second google search would show videos of this happening in many (many) fast casual locations.

    But hey, attack the company doing something good about it...

      I know there is opioid crisis. But why only Starbucks employees have to deal with needles. I don’t see this as an issue with other chains

      If you fire up the Google machine, you would see that your assertion is incorrect.

      Several videos of needles in fast food chain bathrooms and news articles.

    This is what happens when you let anyone use your bathrooms and adjust your policy

    Starbucks offers public restrooms, the public uses needles for one reason or another. Why is this a big deal?

      No there's not but definately a lot drug use I wasn't discounting that. If you are gonna do it at least be safe about it.

      Agreed. They should also offer free knife sharpeners so that if you are going to stab someone, at least it’s a clean cut.

      If stabbing was an epidemic absolutely that would be a good idea.

    The alternative is to ask all Starbucks customers if they have needles at the door and if so to leave the premise?

      Fair enough - illegal drugs.

      Why though what makes a drug illegal or are we just assuming whatever the government says is illegal is bad like marijuana?

      Societal judgement. The societal costs of illegal drug abuse are astronomical. My bet is that if you implemented death penalty for illegal drug use, you would also find society would liberalize a lot of recreational drugs.

      Alcohol causes roughly 88,000 deaths a year which far exceeds any other drug, why is that acceptable?

      Because society says so.

      Also, 100 million Americans drink for a ratio of .08% user:death ratio. Number of illegal drug users is exponentially less but almost an equivalent number of deaths from overdose (72K).

    Smart move. What's not smart is ignoring needles in bathrooms.

      I looked it up. Sounds like an asinine position

      Are you for Starbucks employees having to deal with needles from drug addicts?
      Jan 10
    • New JthG36
      Looks like we agree that Starbucks employees not having to deal with needles is a good thing. A logical solution might be installing some sort of receptacle so users could dispose needles.

      Or calling the cops on illegal drug users.

      How? Install cameras and monitor what folks are up to in bathrooms?
      Jan 11
    • Intel Jopdi(78
      Sure. Isn’t that what you do in most places where crimes are taking place?

    Lol, the outcome when you don’t let private companies refuse service.

    Typically official version is about tolerance to people who need insulin injections.

      Except modern insulin injections don’t require needles like in 1982.

    First, they got in trouble because a barista looked at a black man the wrong way. Because of that, they changed their official policy to allow anyone to lounge in their stores. The heroin addict street people know this and are now setting up shop in there and shooting up in the bathrooms. So Starbucks is probably trying to protect themselves legally when your kid gets stabbed by a heroin needle on your family outing.

    Hi, needle user here. I appreciate the needle disposal boxes, but I prefer Starbucks offer safe injection sites. Then i would buy a hot tea or something as well.
