You hear stories of drug problems on the rise in the Sault, but how would you like to come home to this at your front door.
Well this is what I came home to today.
A picture can say a thousand things. It can also evoke just as many.
What do you do? Who do you call? Is there anyone that takes care of discarded needles in this city?
“In all reality I hear of five overdoses a week,” Desiree Beck, Chair of the Sault Ste. Marie and Area Drug Strategy Committee said this past December. “Over the past three weeks I personally know of six people who have died from overdose. The unfortunate thing is that this is not a spike.”
Only a month ago The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service partnered with The Sault Ste. Marie and Area Drug Strategy and The Machine Shop to host a Town Hall event designed to raise awareness and answer questions about illicit drug use in our community.
Where do we stand? Is there any solution or is that naive to think that way?
What are your thoughts?
