My brother was 29 years old and died from a drug over dose. He was a healthy man and full of life. He made the mistake of doing this drug. He had four beautiful kids at home. His so called friends called EMS and they were asked what happened. All three lied and said he was only drunk and had smoked synthetic weed aka K2. He was denied life saving medicine that could have saved his life. I would like to get this going to make Duke's Law so anyone who lies to an EMS does jail time. Lives are being lost every day because of lies. Please help get Dukes law into effect.

Dear Ms. Bridenstine: Thank you for writing with regard to the request for a new law for lying to EMS doctors. The Governor has asked that I respond on his behalf.

Please be assured if any future legislative action arises the Governor will be mindful of the views you expressed. I also encourage you to communicate your views with your legislators as they have the ability to introduce new legislation before the General Assembly.

I have lived in North Baltimore for over 6 years now and i have family roots all the way back. I am writing you this email to ask for your support on a law i am trying to get to congress. My younger brother Dearl Jordan died from a drug over dose on February 13th 2012. His wife Mary Jordan, Cousin Misty Lance and Damian Adams were all with him. I was told Ems was called and that they were too scared to say that it was a drug over dose so they lied saying he was drunk and smoked synthetic weed. I have worked closely with Detective Rod Smith with the wood county sheriffs office and none of them can be charged. There is no law against lying to ems or a doctor. How can this be? I honestly think it should be right up there with lying to a police officer. Because of these three people a man is dead and four young kids are without a father. I need help. I never want a child to hear that their parent died when they could have been saved. If you think you can help or even advise me on this please contact me via email or phone
