High School students from Carteret, Craven, Jones, and Onslow counties presented a special presentation at the monthly meeting of the Women's Caucus at the NC General Assembly.
The students are part of the Substance Abuse Prevention Helps Everyone youth team. The team's mission is to help change attitudes regarding underage drinking.
They talked to the Caucus on reasons that the beer excise tax should be increased to prevent underage drinking.
Members of the Caucus applauded the women's efforts.
