Baker: Skeptical About Safe Injection Sites

BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Charlie Baker says he's skeptical about creating "safe injection sites" to help stem the state's opioid abuse crisis. 

The Republican says it's unknown whether allowing supervised spaces where drug users can shoot up under the care of trained staff will lead people into treatment. 

Baker says he understands the argument that the sites could help reduce fatal overdoses, but says that he's still "a hard sell."
