Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

No, if the user was overdosing on heroin and was on probation, using drugs is a violation of probation and after treatment the probation officer can charge them to violate their probation. A good Samaritan law does not protect someone who overdoses from violating their probation I am afraid.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
