Oppose Colorado SB14-177/178: Changing the definition of "Drug-Endangered Child" Oppose Colorado SB14-177/178
| Hunter Holliman
Legislators in Colorado are rushing to pass harmful bills that would expand the drug war by allowing law enforcement to take children away from parents who are suspected of any legal or illegal drug use or possession. With no exemption for medical cannabis use, this could potentially make all parents who use medical cannabis criminals!
SB14-177 and SB14-178 aim to create a new, distinct definition for "drug-endangered child" in both the civil and criminal codes that would allow the state to remove children from households where parents are using medical cannabis.
