Does pot legalization put Vancouver’s Overdose Prevention Society back in business?

 

The Overdose Prevention Society is hoping the legalization of marijuana puts the organization back in business on the streets of Vancouver.

Workers with the society have been handing out pot in the hopes of curbing the number of overdoses attributed to opioids.

But they were shut down by the Vancouver police.

As of Wednesday, they hope be back on the streets.
