MARTINSBURG, WV (AP) — Trouble is brewing in West Virginia for a promising program moving homeless people into housing.
Martinsburg has passed a city ordinance allowing police to evict renters if they even suspect drug use.
The so-called “drug house ordinance″ was adopted by a dozen West Virginia towns.
Advocates say it conflicts with a proven strategy to get homeless people under a roof first, then treat their drug problems.
