CHAIR  RALPH  SEEKINS  announced  CSHB  379(JUD)  to  be  up  for                                                               
consideration.                                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
MICHAEL   PAWLOWSKI,   Staff   to  Representative   Kevin   Meyer                                                               
introduced the  bill. Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid,  otherwise known                                                               
as GHB, is  a drug that, when ingested,  elicits feelings similar                                                               
to  intense  intoxication.  It  is   easily  added  to  a  drink,                                                               
difficult  to detect,  and  leaves the  system  quickly. GHB  has

at the  federal level to  a schedule  1 narcotic. The  bill would                                                               
add the drug to Alaska's list of schedule 1A narcotics.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
8:43:29 AM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR SEEKINS  asked whether the  Department of Law  supports the                                                               
bill.                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
ANNE  CARPENETI, Assistant  Attorney General,  Department of  Law

CHAIR SEEKINS noted there were no  questions and no one signed up                                                               
to testify and so he closed public testimony.
