Donovan, Public Safety Commissioner Keith Flynn and Health Commissioner Dr. Harry Chen say their hope is not to condone drug use, but to reduce the number of drug overdose deaths. There were 73 in Vermont in 2012. Thu, 24 Jan 2013 01:30:00 +0000 Pat Bradley 56359 at http://wamc.org Bill Would Create Immunity for 911 Overdose Calls
