CONCORD — New Hampshire lawmakers are considering whether to pass a new bill that would hold dealers responsible for selling deadly doses of heroin or fentanyl.
The proposed bill would require that dealers who supply overdose victims with the heroin/fentanyl that killed them be charged with manslaughter, which is punishable by up to 30 years imprisonment in New Hampshire.
The house criminal justice and public safety committee held its first hearing on the bill Wednesday. For one member of the committee, Bob Elliott, the bill is personal; he has two sons who have battled addiction.
“It’s one thing to kill yourself,” Elliott said. “If you want to kill yourself, that’s OK. But don’t give [drugs] to one of my kids so he can kill himself.”
