2020 Legislation We Oppose
HB20-1150 Repeal House Bill 19-1263 Penalties for Drug Possession – Last year’s penalty for drug possession bills acknowledged that substance use should be viewed as a public health crisis rather than treated as a criminal matter and reduced charges for possession of small amounts of controlled substances. This proposed repeal of that bill would reinstate failed practices of the drug war.
HB20-1271 Repeal Red Flag and Amend 72-hour Hold – This bill repeals the Red Flag Law. Law enforcement leaders who have advocated for the Red Flag Law expect that it will save lives. Repealing the Red Flag Law is a setback for public health and safety.
