Bill summary

Senate amendment #1 makes the following changes.

Modifies proposed GS 14-18.4 to change the elements established for the offenses of death by distribution of certain controlled substances and aggravated death by distribution of certain controlled substances to require that the person's unlawful sale or delivery of the certain controlled substance(s) was the proximate cause of the victim's death (rather than a proximate cause). Additionally, provides that a person cannot be prosecuted under the statute if the person would qualify for limited immunity under state law concerning drug-related overdose treatment, GS 90-96.2 (previously, specified that the statute does not restrict or interfere with the rights and immunities provided under GS 90-96.2).
