Why Denver’s safe injection site should go near Civic Center Park
DENVER -- It is a story everyone is talking about: Denver's City Council approving a safe injection site to operate within city limits. The goal? Give those addicted to opioids a safe legal place to get high so if they overdose, they will not die. Before Denver can move forward with its plans, the General Assembly and Governor-elect Jared Polis would have to sign into law a bill giving the city permission. Polis still has no public position on the subject.
