The documentary, “Everywhere But Safe,” debuted at Maysles Cinema in Manhattan in August and will be available on Sept. 30. The film leaves an unanswered question: Could safe injection sites ever be legal?
Leo Beletsky, an associate professor of law and health sciences at Northeastern University , said it’s not impossible, but “there’s a variety of major hurdles.”
For instance, drug possession is still illegal.
“Basically where there’s a will there’s a way, legally,” Beletsky said.
