State lawmakers gathered for the signing of the newly reinstated Good Samaritan Overdose Law. The law expired last summer, much to the chagrin of public health advocates.
The law protects people who call 911 for someone who's overdosing from being arrested.
Going forward the law will protect people from being charged for drug possession or use, and from being picked up for violating probation.
Lawmakers put an expiration date on the original bill passed in 2012 in case it conflicted with law enforcement.
