Annotation: Since the 1971 enactment of drug legislation in South Carolina that created a permanent drug and narcotics study committee within the General Assembly, the members have worked to become knowledgeable and keep abreast of activities in drug education, treatment, aftercare, rehabilitation, and law enforcement.
Abstract: During the 1984-1985 legislative session, the Committee was instrumental in guiding the passage of two significant pieces of legislation raising the drinking age for South Carolina youth. The enactment of this legislation was influenced by the Governor's Committee on Highway Safety, the Attorney General, the State's Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission and Department of Highways and Public Transportation, and citizen groups including the Parent Teachers Association and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The report includes information on the South Carolina Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, Department of Corrections, Department of Education substance abuse programs, law enforcement division, Department of Mental Health projects, and rehabilitation programs.
