=============================================

Naloxone is a benign drug. If it is administered when an individual is not experiencing an opioid overdose, no harm will come to the patient. 

Good Samaritan Law protects an overdose victim and those who summon help from:

  • arrest in the presence of misdemeanor drug possession and/or underage drinking
  • prosecution in felony possession (unless there are aggravating circumstances, e.g. possession with intent to sell or outstanding warrants)
