House Approves Changes to Drug, Dui Penalties

Hughes Law April 5, 2016

The state House yesterday approved a measure (HB 1478) that would lower the legal penalties for repeated drug possession, WLPN reports. Under the bill, sponsored by Rep. William Lambert, R-Cottontown, drug possession would become a misdemeanor. The legislation also heightens the penalties for driving drunk in an effort to make people with numerous DUIs serve more time behind bars. The state Senate could vote on the proposal next week.
