Syringe Exchange Laws
In 2006, AB 547 authorized cities and countries to have clean needle and syringe exchange programs(SEPs) upon the action of local authorities.
As of July 2006, San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors unanimously authorized two measures to allow easier access to new syringes. A syringe exchange will be established in the city of San Luis Obispo, allowing for one for one exchange of syringes and pharmacies will be allowed to sell syringes without a perscription.
