Senate Bill 474, “Photo Identification for Certain Controlled Substances” requires a person to provide a photo ID to obtain Schedule II controlled substances such as amphetamine, codeine, morphine, etc.
The allowable types of ID are very limited, they are: a drivers license, special identification card issued under G.S. 20-37.7, military identification card, or a passport.
All but 8 members of the North Carolina General Assembly voted for this legislation. Unlike the voter photo ID bill, we heard no insults or accusations of racism from the Democrats in the Legislature or from the Governor’s office with this bill.
