Petition update

Call to ban ketamine in Aurora

Justice for Elijah McClain
Aurora, CO, United States

Sep 9, 2020 — 

Elijah died because he was injected with a powerful drug called ketamine – a drug police officers are using to sedate people across the country, with serious side effects. Even the Colorado Department of Health is concerned about this trend, and has launched an investigation into ketamine.

But since Elijah’s death, the Aurora police department has continued to use ketamine on people. It has to stop.

Next Monday, Aurora Councilman Curtis Gardner will introduce a resolution to ban the use of ketamine by law enforcement until 30 days after the Department of Health’s investigation is complete. This resolution needs our support, to protect Aurora residents from this powerful and potentially dangerous drug. 

Click here to call the Aurora City Council and request that they pass the resolution. 

Elijah is by no means the only person to be hurt by this drug – we’ve heard too many horror stories from people injected with ketamine against their will, and the side effects they suffered. Let’s shed light on this disturbing trend.
