FILE - A sign on the wall reads "This site save lives" in Spanish and English at an overdose prevention center at OnPoint NYC in New York, Feb. 18, 2022. Across the U.S., drug overdoses killed an estimated 100,000 people in 2021, according to federal health officials. That has pushed lawmakers in Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada to consider joining New York in allowing what are often called “overdose prevention centers" — spaces where people can use illicit drugs under the supervision of trained staff who could reverse an overdose if necessary.

  1. Dave Perry, this would be an excellent debate subject should the Sentinel host a mayoral and city council candidate forum this year. Not a lot of room to waffle on this one.

  2. Right, the old approach shows that people will still find a way to do these kinds of drugs. Instead of doing nothing new, try something different. No matter the pushback from old world thinkers.
