The new state law shields from prosecution overdose victims and others who might be in violation of the law when seeking medical help for them.
Bon Jovi has a daughter in college who apparently overdosed on heroin last year in New York state. Charges against her and another student were dropped under that state's own good Samaritan overdose-reporting law.
Bon Jovi praised Christie and the Legislature for New Jersey's new law. The rocker says he expects it to save lives.
