Moriarty, Diegnan, Wimberly, Vainieri Huttle, Gusciora & Sumter Bill to Help Prevent Over-the-Counter Drug Abuse Signed Into LawMeasure Prohibits Sale of DXM-Containing Products to Minors
Legislation Assembly Democrats Paul Moriarty, Patrick Diegnan, Benjie Wimberly, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Reed Gusciora and Shavonda Sumter sponsored to ban the sale of certain over-the-counter medications to young people in New Jersey is now law.
"DXM abuse is becoming increasingly worrisome for law enforcement, parents and health care providers across the country," said Moriarty (D-Gloucester/Camden). "It's a scary thought, but adolescents are the primary abusers, mainly because it's cheap and easy to obtain and many parents simply don't know about its potential abuse. With a few simple steps like the ones outlined included in this law, we can combat the risk and ensure this medicine is used properly."
