The Hoosier state is encouraging students to seek medical help if dangerously intoxicated.
Attorney General Greg Zoeller and State Senator Jim Merritt are visiting college campuses to remind students that Indiana has a new law which protects people from arrest if they seek help for an alcohol-related medical emergency. The Indiana lifeline law went into effect on July 1.
Zoeller says that by raising public awareness, they hope that young people will not be reluctant to call 911 if someone needs help.
More than two dozen Indiana students under the age of 21 have lost their lives to alcohol poisoning since 2004. Many of those deaths could have been prevented.
