The Council will introduce legislation within the next month that would prohibit drug injection sites in unincorporated Pierce County.
This legislation comes as follow-up to a proviso sponsored by Councilmember Jim McCune and adopted by the Council in the 2018 Budget. The proviso prohibits the expenditure of funds to any drug injections sites.
The Council will be modeling the legislation after Snohomish County’s Ordinance No. 18-014.
County residents are encouraged to contact their County Council Representative to provide input on drug injection sites.
