Having looked at it its hardly a “soft option”. The place looks like a cross between a military field hospital (when DK was occupied in WWII!), and a public WC, and although its cleaner and safer the drug users “pay” for it by registering their personal details (and providing the Danish health authorities with valuable research data about their usage patterns and health).
It has stopped many ODs ending up in fatalities and kept open drug use away from the street, which surely improves everyone elses quality of life even if they don’t take drugs at all..
Incidentally unless Danmarks Radio were helping the BBC with the report and/or the Asian Network reporter they sent there or or one of her team speaks Danish, the addicts would have been proficient enough in English to speak to the journalists – so its much more of an indictment on Danish society that even well educated people end up addicted to hard drugs and having to become sex workers etc (which is also illegal there) than the drugs problem as a whole!
