     1    It shall be  a  defense  to  the  crime  of  transport  of  an  opiate

     3  substance transported was exclusively for the defendant's  own  personal
     4  use. Nothing contained in this paragraph shall constitute a defense to a
     5  prosecution  for,  or  preclude  a conviction of, transport of an opiate
     6  controlled substance in the second degree or any other crime.
     7    Transport of an opiate controlled substance in the first degree  is  a
     8  class B felony.
     9    §  3.  This  act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall
    10  have become a law.
