New Law Protects Those who Overdose


There is a new federal law in place to protect those who overdose on drugs.

If someone calls 911 about an overdose on illegal drugs they will not be charged with possession.

Part of the reason for the new law is due to the increase over drug overdoses from opioid use.

The Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act was given Royal Assent yesterday.
