Apparently Gov. Pat McCrory was serious a few months ago when he challenged UNC system leaders to do something about substance abuse on campus.
On Friday, Board of Governors Vice Chairman Frank Grainger briefed the board on a series of meetings between the governor's staff and UNC leaders. On Sept. 4, Grainger and UNC President Tom Ross met with McCrory and his staff, as well as Frank Perry, secretary of Public Safety, and Jim Gardner, chairman of the ABC Commission. The sheriffs of Anson and Guilford counties also attended, Grainger said.
"The bottom line is that it appears that drugs are becoming more and more prevalent on our campuses," Grainger said.
