Bill would make possessing drugs in Colorado a misdemeanor instead of a felony
DENVER - It is not decriminalization, but it is an effort to have fewer Coloradans in state prison. On Tuesday, lawmakers heard testimony on House Bill 1263, which would make it a misdemeanor and no longer a felony to possess illegal drugs. The bill does not address distribution of drugs, which means it will still be a felony to sell illegal products.
