A video of a homeless man who apparently is the use of drugs on a BART train in San Francisco last month, another footnote in the city’s struggle with the quality-of-life issues.

Local news anchor Reggie Aqui posted images of the man smoking an illegal substance on the BART train to Powell Street station.

.@SFBART Well, this was a first for me. He did this right before he got off at station Powell. Went to BART stand but no attendant. Saw an accompanist on the MUNI, but the man was gone. Sigh. pic.twitter.com/VOcn855B1U

“@SFBART Well, this was a first for me. He did this right before he stepped out on drive Powell,” Aqui tweeted. “Went to BART stand but no attendant. Saw an accompanist on the MUNI, but the man was gone. Sigh.”

The video underlines a dangerous trend in the city.

In April, living-Shannon Gafford filmed dozens of drug users fell over and others shooting at the Civic Center, BART and Muni stations.

Shocking video: Junkies shoot up in San Francisco station

In the course of a week, living-Shannon Gafford took videos of the surprising scene that people who are openly taking hard drugs within a San Francisco BART station as commuters pass by.

The video also appeared to a group of unconscious men and women – and vomit – on both sides of the corridor.

Gafford posted a video on his YouTube channel Wednesday appear to show two more people are using drugs in the same corridor.

The best action passengers can take if they see that such behavior is to notify BART police with the help of the BART app on their smartphone, the transit agency, told KGO-TV.

The app is monitored 24 hours a day and the police boarding the train at the time of notification, agency spokesman Chris Filippi said.
