CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A measure introduced in the Wyoming Legislature would allow pharmacies in the state to sell an overdose-reversing drug over the counter without a prescription.

Naloxone blocks or reverses the effects of opioids and can be used to treat an overdose in an emergency.

KTWO-AM in Casper reports (http://bit.ly/2kKRGqC ) that the Albany County Sheriff’s Office and University of Wyoming Police Department began carrying the drug this year.

House Bill 268 was introduced in the state House on Monday.
