A Good Samaritan Bill In Puerto Rico Would Save Lives, So Why Isn't It Passed?

While the opioid epidemic has made headlines in the US over the past few years, little of the attention paid to the epidemic has been on drug users of color. In Puerto Rico, the deadly combination of Hurricane Maria and the influx of fentanyl to the island has been devastating. But, there is a piece of legislation that could provide hope.
