Bill Filed In Maryland To Create Safe Opioid Injection Sites
BALTIMORE (AP) – Maryland lawmakers are once more considering passing a bill that would allow safe drug consumption at designated areas.
The Daily Record of Baltimore reports the pilot program would authorize safe injection sites where people could use opioids near trained staffers who help if there’s an overdose.
There were 1,648 opioid-related deaths in Maryland through the first nine months of 2018, an increase of nearly 10 percent from 2017.
