California Senate approves supervised drug consumption sites

The California State Senate has approved a bill that will allow supervised drug consumption facilities to operate in Oakland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles County. The new legislation will enable people who inject drugs to do so in a safe space and under the supervision of trained staff. The bill must be approved by the California State Assembly before it can proceed to the Democratic governor.
