The Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act provides some legal protection for people who experience or witness an overdose and call 911 or their local emergency number for help.
The Act can protect you from:
– Charges for possession of a controlled substance (i.e. drugs) under section 4(1) of the           Controlled Drugs and Substances Act
– Breach of conditions regarding simple possession of controlled substances (i.e. drugs)
The Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act applies to anyone seeking emergency support during an overdose, including the person experiencing an overdose. The Act protects the person who seeks help, whether they stay or leave from the overdose scene before help arrives. The Act also protects anyone else who is at the scene when help arrives.
