Presenter: Aaron Gaddis, Esq. - Gaddis Law LLC

CLE regarding HB19-1263, newly signed into law and effective as of March 1, 2020 in the State of Colorado, Titled "Offense Level For Controlled Substance Possession"

Colorado has made sweeping changes in its drug possession laws - including Schedule I and II substances- corresponding offense levels, convictions, fines, and sentencing guidelines. Colorado has recently enacted these sweeping reforms, and many other states are looking to this as a model for their reform. Additionally, there are grant programs that may provide counties with substance abuse or mental health treatment services, including diversion.
