“If there were a drug problem, I’d be happy to have the City Council talk about it, but I really don’t think there is a substantial drug problem in Northampton,” Reckman said.

Plassmann, who mentioned that one of her teenage sons told her he came into contact with drugs in a Northampton High School bathroom, said she thought it was time to confront the issue and stop “sweeping the problem under the rug.”
