WV SB 700 The Bill to Authorize BC to Own/Operate a Drug Treatment Center here in Martinsburg

We also cannot forget what happened earlier this year when WV Senate defeated WV SB 700 with 11 YES to 23 NO which was a low blow dealt to many of us here in Berkeley County and Martinsburg who love someone addicted to heroin, opiates and other drugs.

In case you are wondering, This is was the bill, SB 700 BILL

The Bill to authorize the Berkeley County Council to own or operate a drug treatment or drug rehabilitation facility within the city limits of the City of Martinsburg.

So, who voted yes and who voted no?

Apparently to our state leaders harsher penalties will end the heroin epidemic?

Harsher penalties takes aim at WV Heroin Epidemic. Meanwhile people continue to overdose here and people continue to die from overdoses.
