SLIDESHOW: This is what a safe consumption site could look like in King County

Kim Malcolm talks with Patricia Sully, coordinator for VOCAL-WA, about why she's advocating for supervised consumption sites for drug users in King County. She says that drug consumption is already happening in your backyard and that these sites aren't meant to encourage drug use, but support people along a continuum of care.

Malcolm also talks with Ashley Hempelmann, a recovering drug user, and DePaul University sociology professor Greg Scott.
