Drug Sentencing Reform Makes It Through Judiciary

After a long afternoon of waiting for HB 1352 to be heard by House Judiciary, the cleared the first hurdle in what will hopefully be one of the strongest sentencing reform bills to ever clear the legislature.  An amendment that created possible funding for treatment was also adopted into the medical marijuana bill earlier in the day.  Thank you to all who waited patiently to testify and support, we certainly appreciate your help
