SECTION 12-110
Periods of limitation
General Obligations (GOB) CHAPTER 24-A, ARTICLE 12
§ 12-110. Periods of limitation. 1. Notwithstanding any provision of
law to the contrary, a claim under this article may not be brought more
than two years after the cause of action accrues. A cause of action
accrues under this article when a person who may recover has reason to
know of the harm from illegal drug use that is the basis for the cause
of action and has reason to know that the illegal drug use is the cause
of such harm.

2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary for a
plaintiff, the statute of limitations under this section shall be tolled
when an individual potential plaintiff is incapacitated by the use of an
illegal drug to the extent that such individual cannot reasonably be
expected to seek recovery under this article or as otherwise provided
for by law. For a defendant, the statute of limitations under this
section shall be tolled until six months after the individual potential
defendant is convicted of a crime involving participation in a drug
market.
