SB 250 Signed by the Governor

SB 250 the Drug Sentencing Reform Act was signed into law by Governor Hickenlooper this morning at 11:40. It's the most incredible thing I've seen happen .. we fought this battle for over a decade.
 Thank you Senator Pat Steadman, Jessie Ulibarri, Irene Aguilar, Lucia Guzman, Steve King, Linda Newell, John Kefalas, Representative Claire Levy and so many others. This moves us closer to a world where we deal with an addiction as a public health issue and not a criminal justice issue.
