Protective Custody Update V

SECTION 70.   Section 8 of said chapter 111B, as so appearing, is hereby amended by inserting after the word "incapacitated", in line 1, the following words:- by reason of the consumption of intoxicating liquor.

Veto Explanation:
I am vetoing this section because I believe that creating authority for police officers to place in protective custody persons who are incapacitated due to controlled substances or toxic vapors can be done more effectively in the form I have proposed in an amended section 73.
