In Maine news this morning, a legislative committee has approved a bill to put medication that counteracts the life-threatening effects of opiate overdose into the hands of police, firefighters and drug users’ loved ones.  If the Maine House and Senate approve the bill, Maine would join 17 other states that have already expanded access of nalozone, a drug that triggers an immediate and severe withdrawal to heroin and other opiates.
