In brief: HIV and Needle share

There are two ways here.
You can get infected with the virus circulating in the blood of the infected user or you can get infected by your white blood cells engulfing and destroying the infected users blood cells that carry the virus or the dna to take over your cell's brain. Actively sharing needles for drug use is a very common way to get hepatitis b and c and hiv. Please know the facts!
