Am I free to overdose at a safe injection site?

Last updated June 6, 2012, 9:05 p.m.

Hypothetically speaking, if I were to go to a safe injection site where I can use drugs under medical supervision, can I take as much as I want and know I am safe? In other words, if I overdose, they'll save me, right?
