SEATTLE — Bellevue and two other cities near Seattle have voted to ban safe injection sites for drug users in opposition to a proposal by King County.
KING-TV reports (https://goo.gl/8uhh65 ) the Federal Way City Council voted Tuesday to ban the sites, following the cities of Auburn and Bellevue.
King County has proposed creating two “Community Health Engagement Locations” – one in Seattle and one in another part of the county — staffed with medical professionals who would help prevent overdose deaths.
The county says it doesn’t have a short list of locations, just that the sites would be in areas where a high amount of public drug use occurs.
