Bill Radke speaks with University of Washington researcher Caleb Banta-Green with the school's alcohol and drug abuse institute. Banta-Green explains how Naloxone, the emergency overdose drug, can save a person's life in a matter of minutes. Banta-Green also explains that while Naloxone is an important tool, there are other, more important drugs and methods to fight an epidemic that claimed over 300 lives last year in King County.
