The Good Samaritan Law

(Ch. 375–SB 654)

The “Good Samaritan Law” was amended October 1, 2015. “The law expands protections for individuals who seek medical assistance after witnessing or experiencing an overdose. A person who, in good faith, seeks, provides, or assists with the provision of medical assistance after an overdose is immune from arrest, charge, or prosecution for six non-violent alcohol or drug crimes.”

“Violations covered by this law are possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia or controlled paraphernalia, underage possession of alcohol, and furnishing or obtaining alcohol for underage persons.”
