A proposed Missouri bill would give legal amnesty to those seeking emergency medical help for drug overdoses.

Northwest Missouri State University

Northwest Missouri State University has adopted a policy allowing students to seek medical care for overuse of alcohol or drugs without fear of reprisal.

The Maryville Daily Forum reports the amnesty provision approved by the university's Board of Regents is meant to ensure that students get the care they need.
