Protective Custody Update VII

SECTION 72.   Said section 8 of said chapter 111B, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by striking out, in lines 45 and 46, the words "an incapacitated person" and inserting in place thereof the following words:- a person incapacitated 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.
