In an attempt to save the lives of Michigan dope addicts, Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill into law today that will allow emergency responders to carry drugs designed to reverse deadly opioid overdose.

Under this legislation, doctors will also be allowed to prescribe drugs like Naloxone to family and friends of patients at a high risk for opioid drug overdose. These drugs can then be administered in the event of an overdose from heroin or prescription painkillers and will keep the victim from dying.

The new law will also prevent people associated with illegal drug overdoses from being prosecuted. That includes the person suffering the overdose, as well as the people who report it to police.
