SB 223 - This act provides that the offense of murder in the second degree is committed when a person knowingly and unlawfully manufactures, delivers, or distributes a Schedule I or II controlled substance, excluding marijuana for medical use, and thereafter the controlled substance is the proximate cause of the death of another person who uses or consumes it. It shall not be a defense that the defendant did not directly deliver or distribute the controlled substance to the decedent.

This act is identical to provisions of SB 6 (2019).
