Somerville mayor is proposing a “safe consumption site” for drug users. The plan is to open the site by the end of 2020. The US Attorney’s office says they’ll take legal action if Mayor Curatone follows through with his plan.
"Barring a change in the Justice Department’s position, if Somerville opens one, federal enforcement will follow," Lelling said in a statement. "I agree that beating this public health crisis requires treatment and prevention as much as it does prosecution of drug traffickers. But supervised injection sites are not the answer."
Do you support a safe injection site in the city of Somerville?
