02.15.17 - Bipartisan Bill To Crack Down On Cocaine Dealers Clears Ohio House

 

State Rep. John M. Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) today hailed the unanimous House passage of House Bill (HB) 4, bipartisan legislation to restore cocaine penalties invalidated by a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision. Rogers is jointly sponsoring the legislation with former Ohio Supreme Court Justice-turned legislator Rep. Bob Cupp (R-Allen County). 

“If left unchecked, the recent Supreme Court ruling will open the floodgate for cocaine-related trafficking and could increase illicit cocaine usage, addiction, overdoses and drug-related violence in our communities,” said Rogers. “Today’s unanimous vote in the Ohio House is an important step towards keeping our communities safe by restoring the intent of the law and enabling law enforcement to indict drug-traffickers and prosecute their cases consistently.” 

 
 

02.08.17 - Rogers Pushes Bipartisan Bill To Crack Down On Cocaine Dealers

 

State Rep. John M. Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) today testified in the House Criminal Justice Committee in support of House Bill (HB) 4, his legislation to restore cocaine penalties invalidated by a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision. Rogers is jointly sponsoring the legislation with former Ohio supreme Court Justice- turned legislator Rep. Bob Cupp (R-Allen County).

“Ohio’s recent court decision sets a new, dangerous trajectory for our state by allowing drug dealers to buy and sell more cocaine with reduced consequences,” said Rogers. “Instead of effectively handcuffing law enforcement from keeping dangerous drug dealers off our streets, I believe that we should be handcuffing the criminals who make our state and communities less safe with dangerous drugs.”
