Speaker Moore Announces Appointments to House Select Committee on Substance Abuse | Eastern North Carolina Now

Press Release:

    Raleigh, NC     Today, North Carolina Speaker Tim Moore announced appointments to the House Select Committee on Substance Abuse, including Committee Chair Rep. Stephen Ross and Vice Chair Rep. Erin Paré.

    Committee Chair Rep. Stephen Ross said, "North Carolina, like many other states, has experienced a significant impact from the opioid epidemic. Unfortunately, dangerous drugs created to mimic the effects of opioids can now be purchased in gas stations and convenience stores across North Carolina. These products are unregulated and untested, posing a significant threat to consumers. I hope we can make progress in curbing this trend and protecting North Carolinians."

    Vice Chair Rep. Erin Paré said, "From 2000-2022, more than 36,000 North Carolinians lost their lives to drug overdose. While we continue to battle ongoing opioid-related overdose deaths, it's time to take a closer look at the opioid-mimicking products that are Illegally marketed as 'dietary supplements.' These unregulated products include ingredients on the FDA's list of concerning substances and are sold in gas stations and convenience stores, making them easily accessible to many."
