The state of Colorado’s 911 Good Samaritan Law states that a person cannot face criminal prosecution if they report a drug or alcohol overdose, if acting in good faith.
Immunity from criminal prosecution may also apply to a person who remains at the scene of an overdose until a law enforcement officer or an emergency medical responder arrives.
This law also protects the person who has overdosed, giving them criminal immunity, as well.
