Re "T.O. health board OKs safe injection sites" (July 5):

Isn't it funny how marijuana laws are still being enforced when the
federal government has said it is going to be legalized, yet, safe
injection sites are in the process of being approved in Toronto? What
if a police officer stops two people near one of the safe injection
sites, one with pot and the other heroin? Who is arrested and who
isn't? I appreciate that the marijuana dispensaries were acting
outside the law but heroin users will now get a pass if council
approves the sites. But to my knowledge there are still laws against
the use and trafficking of controlled substances, including heroin.
The timing of these two moves by the City of Toronto couldn't be better.
