I Have yet to see one newspaper or a Television or radio station mentioning this new law where they exist. People are being informed by word of mouth and people are still hessitent. We really need to get the media on the ball to save some lives.

In New York and other states, drug users are supposed to be granted immunity when they call 911 to save their friends' lives. But the police and the public have yet to get the message.
