Needle exchange programs safely dispose of used needles and hand out new, clean needles to intravenous drug users.

Coming up on Indiana Newsdesk:

Could lawmakers vote to loosen Indiana’s alcohol restrictions? Ahead the latest from a legislative committee tasked with completing a comprehensive review of the state’s alcohol laws. Could they propose legislation that would allow Sunday Sales? Or more places to sell cold beer?

Indiana made it easier this year to establish syringe exchanges. Counties no longer have to get state approval. But there are fewer exchanges now than before the law went into effect. Coming up, a legislator who has been one of the leading voices for policies to fight the opioid epidemic joins us from the statehouse.

Plus even if you’re not a huge Star Trek fan you probably recognize these… a pair of ears worn by the iconic science fiction character Spock. Coming up the story behind the ears and how you can see them.

Those stories plus the latest news headlines, Friday at 6 on Indiana Newsdesk.
