Governor John Hickenlooper signed into law Colorado House Bill 14-1281, The Right to Try Act. The bill was co-sponsored by a retired physician and supported by others who wish to improve access to unapproved, investigational drugs for terminally-ill patients. Similar “Right to Try” bills are pending before state legislatures of Louisiana, Arizona and Missouri.
