Rep. Leslie Herod says supervised injection bill still has a chance — with changes
A proposal that would allow supervised heroin use in Denver could still become law despite recent setbacks, according to Rep. Leslie Herod.
Senate Bill 40 would allow for the creation of supervised injection sites, where people could inject narcotics in the presence of medical professionals.
It was scheduled to be heard by a Senate committee today, but it has been delayed indefinitely. With opposition piling up, Democratic Rep. Jonathan Singer recently said that “the momentum seems to have shifted,” The Denver Post reported.
