SCS legislation reintroduced by Assemblymember Talamantes-Eggman and Senator Weiner as AB362

On February 4th, 2019. State Assemblymember Susan Talamantes-Eggman and State Senator Scott Weiner reintroduced legislation to allow the City of San Francisco to pilot and evaluate an “overdose prevention site” program. These sites would allow drug users could consume illegal drugs, including heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamine, under supervision of staff trained to prevent and treat drug overdose, and to help steer people who use drugs into drug treatment, housing, and other medical and social services.
