Bill summary

House Amendment #3 adds the following to House Amendment #2, amending the 4th edition.

Current law, GS 90-95(a)(3), makes it unlawful to possess a controlled substance. Amends GS 90-95(d)(4), eliminating the provisions that provide: (1) that if the quantity of the controlled substance exceeds 7 grams of a synthetic cannabinoid or any mixture containing that substance, then the violation of GS 90-95(a)(1) is a Class 1 misdemeanor and (2) that if the quantity of the controlled substance exceeds 21 grams of a synthetic cannabinoid or any mixture containing that substance, then the violation of GS 90-95(a)(3) is a Class I felony (appears to be the changes intended by page 1, lines 28 to page 2, line 11 of Amendment #1). Incorporates other changes to GS 90-95 that appear in Amendment #1. Effective December 1, 2017, and applies to offenses committed on or after that date.
