OVERDOSE? DON'T RUN: CALL 911

Maryland's GOOD SAMARITAN LAW will protect you!

Don't let someone die... Call 911 IMMEDIATELY and get help!

 

The "Good Samaritan Law" went into effect October 1, 2014.  The law establishes that, "a person who, in good faith, seeks, provides, or assists with the provision of medical assistance for a person experiencing an alcohol- or drug-related medical emergency (such as an overdose) may be immune from criminal prosecution for specific violations if the evidence was obtained solely as a result of the person reaching out for medical assistance.  The bill also protects the person experiencing the medical emergency under the same conditions from prosecution for specific violations."
