Opioid Antagonist Bill

POSTED IN: Legislative Updates,

HB 1137 is not going to go anywhere this year. The bill specifies that a law enforcement officer, paramedic, emergency services personnel, or other first responder who administers an emergency opioid antagonist to an individual shall report such use of the emergency opioid antagonist to the police or sheriff’s department in the appropriate jurisdiction, and such police or sheriff’s department shall produce and provide a police report to the appropriate prosecutor in order to supply such department with information that may support a charge for illegal possession of drugs and use of drugs or drug paraphernalia.
