ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WBFF) - A new bill in the Maryland General Assembly takes aim at those who supply deadly drugs to minors.
Circa affiliate FOX45's John Rydell spoke to a couple with first-hand knowledge of the deadly consequences of opioid addiction.
It's been nearly two years since Nancy and Mark Jones' 17-year-old daughter, Amber, died of a heroin overdose.
But the man convicted of supplying the drugs got just three years in jail - and that was just for distributing drugs.
That's why the Jones' and Maryland officials are supporting a bill calling for stiffer penalties for those who supply drugs that lead to the death of a minor.
