Feds issue scathing response to Denver's supervised injection ordinance
"Kilmer then said supervised injection sites can reduce the risk of fatal overdose, disease transmission and issues associated with unhygienic drug use practices but said it’s unclear “about the size of the population-level effects of SCSs.”
"To implement the supervised use site pilot program in Denver, a bill will have to pass through the Colorado State Legislature in the 2019 session."
"State Representative Leslie Herod (D-Denver) said she will be one of the sponsors for a bill to waive the nuisance ordinance. She said the bill is in the works of being written and the plan is still to introduce it during it in January, despite what the U.S. Attorney's Office and DEA said."
