According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Safehouse – in cooperation with the City of Philadelphia – plans to open a ‘supervised injection site’ for illegal drug users at 1930 South Broad Street.
U.S. ATTORNEY WILLIAM MCSWAIN IS APPEALING THE OPENING IN COURT:
“We believe that Safehouse’s proposed activity threatens to institutionalize the scourge of illegal drug use — and all the problems that come with it — in Philadelphia neighborhoods,” he said in a statement. “In light of these concerns, Safehouse should act prudently and not rush to open while the appeal is pending. But if it does rush forward, my office will evaluate all options available under the law.”
