Parents of grown children who died from drug overdose were at the capitol today lobbying for legislation they say might have saved lives.
Activists wore shirts bearing the name of Andy Lamp, a Davenport man who died of an overdose of heroin at the age of 33.
His mother Kim Brown says a friend who was with him at the time was unable to help.
“He died May 25, 2011 of an accidental overdose,” Brown says. “He wasn’t alone and I’m here in support of our overdose prevention bill.”
