US state of Rhode Island approves safe consumption site bill

The Rhode Island Senate has passed a bill approving safe drug consumption sites. The bill also outlines the requirement to establish an advisory committee that will assist Rhode Island’s health department to regulate such services. If the bill is approved by the House, Rhode Island would become the first US state to legalise ‘Harm Reduction Centers’ that provide community-based resources and recovery assistance to people who use drugs.
