Overdose is a major public health problem in New Jersey. More than 700 lives were lost in 2009 alone. These deaths are completely preventable--the majority of overdose victims don't actually die until one to three hours after they have taken a drug, and most of these deaths occur in the presence of others. We can start saving lives by passing a 911 Good Samaritan law in New Jersey, which would ensure that calling 911 is never a crime. These are the stories of average New Jerseyans who have been touched by overdose, some lost a loved one while others experienced an overdose themselves. Support the 911 Good Samaritan law in memory of their sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, for whom that 911 call was never placed.
