Synopsis As Introduced

Provides that a person who, in good faith, seeks or obtains emergency medical assistance for someone experiencing an overdose or who is experiencing an overdose shall not be arrested, charged, or prosecuted for controlled substance manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver or a possession violation of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, a drug paraphernalia violation, a methamphetamine delivery or possession violation, a drug-induced homicide violation, or an aggravated battery violation based on unlawfully delivering a controlled substance to another person and any user experiences great bodily harm or permanent disability as a result of the injection, inhalation, or ingestion of any amount of the controlled substance. Provides that these violations must not serve as the sole basis of a violation of parole, mandatory supervised release, probation or conditional discharge, a Department of Children and Family Services investigation, or any seizure of property under any State law authorizing civil forfeiture so long as the evidence for the violation was acquired as a result of the person seeking or obtaining emergency medical assistance in the event of an overdose. Provides that the limited immunity as relates to methamphetamine only applies to possession of less than 3 grams. Provides that nothing in these provisions are intended to interfere with or prevent the investigation, arrest, or prosecution of any person for the delivery or distribution of cannabis, methamphetamine, or other controlled substances, drug-induced homicide, or any other crime if the evidence of the violation is not acquired as a result of the person seeking or obtaining emergency medical assistance in the event of an overdose. Deletes provisions that the limited immunity only applies to Class 4 felony possession of a controlled, counterfeit, or look-alike substance or a controlled substance analog.
