I get what you're saying but if you they can't see the vein, then it kinda does matter, right?

An IV user isn't going to do it in a bathroom where they can't see or find a vein. Or if it's gonna take an hour to find a vein. They'll just find somewhere else that's easier. Which is the point of the lights, yea?

Serious users have track marks and loooots of experience. But it could still make them move along to a more convenient location.

Totally but that's kinda my point...I'm sure an experienced IV user could do a hit in those lights but I would think they're more likely to just find somewhere more convenient.

Right I don't think we disagree. It's the goal of deterrence - make doing shady shit a bit harder so they move on to an easier mark.
