POLL: Do you support safe injection sites?

It's a shocking statistic - more people die from a heroin or opioid drug overdose in King County than from a car accident. Can this be prevented? Will the county's plan to create two safe injection sites, where users consume drugs under medical supervision, reduce harm or cause more addiction?

On the show:
Dow Constantine, King County Executive
Dr. Jeff Duchin, Health Officer, King County Public Health
Brad Finegood, Co-Chair, Heroin & Opiate Taskforce
Jeanne Kohl-Welles, King County Council
Mark Miloscia, State Senator (R-30th)
Shilo Murphy, Executive Director, People's Harm Reduction Alliance
