Yes. Denver's already doing exactly what you said. It's working well. Here's an article on it from the Denver Post.

Yes but the rest of the state is still fucked. We're in the four corners area and my wife had a panic attack 4 years ago. She was arrested and spent 5 fucking days locked up without her essential medicine. She was 62 when this happened.

No she was in jail. There's no psychological help down here. She was never put in a cell to have a pallet to sleep or sit on because they expected her to have a seizure due to Taki g her off medication abruptly.
