The Good Samaritan Law was passed to encourage friends, family members, and bystanders to call 911 in the event of an overdose.
The Law provides protection from prosecution for ingestion or possession of a substance or possession of drug paraphernalia for a maximum of three people, including the person overdosing.
In order to be immune from prosecution, you need to:
- Call 911
- Remain onsite until assistance arrives
- Cooperate with law enforcement and emergency medical service personnel
