SPOKANE, Wash. — State Senator Andy Billig will be hosting a meeting on drug laws within the state.
The public meeting will look into how Washington can navigate substance use disorder and the criminal justice system after Washington State Supreme Court’s decision on Washington v Blake, ruling that the state’s felony drug possession statute was unconstitutional.
Billig, who represents the 3rd Legislative District in Spokane, will be joined by multiple community leaders, including Superior Court Judge Harold Clarke, Spokane Police Chief Craig Meidl, Public Defender for the City of Spokane Francis Adewale, State Representative Marcus Riccelli and more.
“A response to the Blake decision will be one of the most important issues we tackle in the 2023 Legislative session and need to receive input from experts and the public to make sure we get the right solution for our community as a whole and for individuals suffering from substance abuse disorder,” Billig said.
Billig will give an overview of the court decision and current law and the experts will give their opinion. Following this portion of the meeting, the public will be allowed to ask questions.
The event will take place at the Central Library in Spokane on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
