THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

Participants in ACR Health's peer-delivered syringe exchange program, which is available in St. Lawrence County, are shielded from being prosecuted for illegal possession of a syringe, even if it contains residue of an illicit substance. Do you feel the program should or shouldn't extend such legal protection?

Take the NCNow Survery

Results will be posted Monday, May 9.

LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:

The majority of St. Lawrence County legislators want the state to investigate District Attorney Mary Rain for a variety of issues that have occurred since she took office in 2014, including a lawsuit brought by a former employee. Such an investigation has the potential to have her removed from office depending on the findings, but could also cost the county tens of thousands of dollars.

Would you like to see a state investigation of the St. Lawrence County District Attorney?
