Overdose Liability Bill Passes MD House

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - A bill meant to make it easier to get help for overdose victims is one step closer to becoming law in Maryland.

The so called Good Samaritan Bill passed in the House Thursday morning.

It would allow people to call for help without the fear of being charged with possession of drugs or alcohol, if police or emergency personnel are called to help an overdose victim.  Similar legislation has been passed in seventeen states and the District of Columbia.

This bill now heads to the Maryland State Senate.
