Ohio sheriff says his officers won’t carry Narcan

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones insists he is not heartless but says requiring deputies to administer the remedy puts them in danger and the cost of repeatedly treating people with Narcan is “sucking the taxpayers dry.”

“All we’re doing is reviving them, we’re not curing them,” Jones told NBC News on Friday. “One person we know has been revived 20 separate times.”

But, Jones hastened to add, “We don’t go there and let people die.”
