Needles on the MBTA

By on

The heroin epidemic is so bad that the MBTA should install needle disposal boxes in their stations so children,cleaners and passengers won't get stuck with a discarded needle left behind on a bench or a restroom.

Hmmm...

The needle is definitely dangerous, but there is no indication as to whether the man's beef was fresh, frozen, or cooked...
