Tanya Smith, right, sits next to a portrait of her daughter Taylor while sitting for a photo in her home, Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, in Holly Springs, Ga. Smith, a Georgia police officer who oversees criminal investigations, is no stranger to battling the perils of drug abuse. Yet Smith’s current fight is personal, in memory of her 20-year-old daughter, Taylor, who died last year of a drug overdose after no one called 911 for help. Smith is among a group of parents lobbying on behalf of a bill that would grant amnesty from certain drug charges for those who seek medical attention in the event of a drug overdose. “My daughter died because people were too afraid to dial 911,” said Smith, a lieutenant with the Holly Springs Police Department. “This is taking that fear out of it.” (AP Photo/David Goldman) less
