Rep. Batinick's 2021 Survey

The House passed legislation in April that would make certain amounts of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, morphine, and LSD misdemeanors. When Colorado implemented similar legislation in 2019, Denver saw more than double the overdoses involving fentanyl in the following year. In 2021 alone, Will County has seen 58 overdoses (Will County Coroner) and of the drug overdose deaths in Illinois in 2019, 80% involved opioids (IDPH) . Do you support the reduction of penalties of certain amounts of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, morphine, and LSD?
