City outlaws drug paraphernalia near schools

March 23, 2011

WOONSOCKET — A campaign that began with the Beacon Charter High School for the Arts has prompted the City Council to pass a new law prohibiting the sale of crack pipes, bongs, rolling papers and other drug paraphernalia near schools.
It all started a few weeks ago, when Ahmad Alhanawi opened the “In and Out Mart” next door to the alternative high school, located at 320 Main St. Principal Robert Pilkington said teachers and students were looking forward to having a convenience store next door to the school so they could make quick pits stops for snacks.
