Fulton St. methadone clinic gets flak

If you take the C train at Clinton-Washington on weekdays around 7AM, no doubt you've heard the raucous meth-clinic-crowd whooping it up as they await their heavenly pills.

Now, a task force is being created to maintain control among the drug abusers. The brainchild of Councilwoman Letitia James (D–Fort Greene) and Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries (D–Fort Greene), this task force will seek to stem the growing number of complaints.

As a personal aside, on our way to the Fulton St. post office one Saturday morning, we turned the corner at Fulton/Washington to see a steady stream of glassy-eyed, skid-row types loitering a few blocks away from the clinic. More of an eyesore than anything else, really..

yeah those crack heads congregate at the corner of classon and fulton because apparently there is some law stating they can only amass a certain distance from the door to the clinic. they apparently are well aware of this.

zwthis brainchild of james and jeffries is another way to accelerate the gentrification of neighborhoods that have been poor and black for decades. 20-30 years ago when white people were nowhere to be found in these areas no one gave rats ass about these drug addicts nor the 'eye sore' that they caused folks with gentle eyes.

Did you know that the ones giving the drugs to these addicts to sell are your neighbors in your surroundings. You should be looking into this seriously speaking.
