An excellent idea!
Washington’s New “911 Good Samaritan” Law goes into effect June 10, 2010. Five things you should know about this law:
1.) Drug overdoses kill more than two people per day in Washington. More Washingtonians die every year from overdoses than from car crashes.
2.) Many of these deaths can be prevented with fast medical help. Calling 911 can save a life.
3.) If you call 911 because your friend overdoses you will receive immunity from drug possession charges.
4.) If you call 911 because your friend overdoses your friend will receive immunity from drug possession charges.
5.) The law expands access to Naloxone, an opiate antagonist that reverses overdoses from opiates.
