Re: “"Good Samaritans" will not be punished for reporting underage drinking overdoses

There have been 599 people that have had overdoses reversed (with community based naloxone), through the benefits of SB20 via North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition as of 6/22/2015. This new law will help save more lives and increases pharmacy access to naloxone.

Re: “Law enforcement and drug users embrace needle bill

Some people may wonder why non-needles are discussed and that is because hepatitis B & C and HIV live on other sharp drug paraphernalia including pipes and cookers. Law Enforcement Officers get cut on them quite a bit and this leads them to disease exposures and costly post exposure profalaxis. It is important to include sharps to improve the safety and health of officers and the public health of the community. No officer should have to get HIV or viral hepatitis, they are preventable diseases. This bill ensures we greatly reduce officer risks, without hurting the taxpayers wallet.
