9:04 am
together. agents wouldn't be able to open a safe injection site alone. we have to work with partners within the community and leaders and other departments to make sure there is an active system. otherwise a site like this would have negative sequences. what about critics who say this promotes illegal drug use. >> it doesn't. the type of folks that use this site are folks that have been using for awhile and are not using substances for recreational use but really to manage their withdrawal symptoms. they can get the safe needles they need and the support that they need. we would follow harm reduction principles to make sure this is a place of dignity and respect. >> reporter: thank you so much, kenneth kim, the clinical director of glide foundation. i want to show you this room. there is also a tour going on with some people in community learning about this. this room is a prototype of what
