U.S. attorney for W.D. Va. speaks to county board against methadone clinic

This Roanoke Times article says that the W.D. Va.'s U.S. attorney, John Brownlee, spoke against allowing a methadone clinic to be located in Roanoke County, even though he had to admit there were no problems with crime in the areas of other methadone clinics in Southwest Virginia.

From what little I know of it, methadone treatment is sort of like probation, only those with a high-level of discipline can pull it off, and the people with the problem are often going to fail.
