(Buffalo, N.Y.) – On the Buffalo Review (3/21) we discussed homelessness in western New York, supervised injection centers and alternative break at Buffalo State.

In the first half of the show, we spoke with Christine Slocum, from the Homeless Alliance of Western New York, about efforts to combat homelessness in Buffalo.

Next we spoke with Sally Yageric, from the Erie County Council for the Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse, about a proposal from Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick to allow supervised injection facilities that would allow heroin addicts to safely shoot up under clinical supervision.
