In Washington State, we have a serious and large problem of illicit drug use. King County has seen an increase in the number of heroin addicts in the past 7 years with the last recorded number of 3,400 people in 2017. Safe sites are not the answer as an alternative solution as it allows people to continue their drug addiction. I believe we should take the $1.5 million dollars set aside for the Safe Sites in King County and reallocate this money towards drug and mental health treatment.
Instead of supporting the drug habits of thousands of people, it is necessary to look at the root causes and provide opportunities for treatment, intervention, and prevention.
