SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 306 of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 826) requires that the Attorney General establish aggregate production quotas for each basic class of controlled substance listed in Schedules I and II. This responsibility has been delegated to the Administrator of the DEA by 28 CFR 0.100. The Administrator in turn, has redelegated this function to the Deputy Administrator, pursuant to 28 CFR 0.104. On December 9, 2005, DEA published a notice of established initial 2006 aggregate production quotas for certain controlled substances in Schedules I and II (70 FR 73269). This notice stipulated that the DEA would adjust the quotas in early 2006 as provided for in 21 CFR part 1303. The proposed revised 2006 aggregate production quotas represent those quantities of controlled substances in Schedules I and II that may be produced in the United States in 2006 to provide adequate supplies of each substance for: The estimated medical, scientific, research and industrial needs of the United States; lawful export requirements; and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. These quotas do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes. The proposed revisions are based on a review of 2005 year-end inventories, 2005 disposition data submitted by quota applicants, estimates of the medical needs of the United States, product development, and other information available to the DEA. Therefore, under the authority vested in the Attorney General by section 306 of the CSA of 1970 (21 U.S.C. 826), delegated to the Administrator of the DEA by 28 CFR 0.100, and redelegated to the Deputy Administrator pursuant to 28 CFR 0.104, the Deputy Administrator hereby proposes the following revised 2006 aggregate production quotas for the following controlled substances, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base: rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Previously established initial 2006 quotas (grams) Basic Class—Schedule I: 2,5–Dimethoxyamphetamine ............................................................................................................................ 2,5–Dimethoxy-4-ethylamphetamine (DOET) .................................................................................................. 3–Methylfentanyl ............................................................................................................................................... 3–Methylthiofentanyl ......................................................................................................................................... 3,4–Methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA) ........................................................................................................ 3,4–Methylenedioxy-N-ethylamphetamine (MDEA) ......................................................................................... 3,4–Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) ............................................................................................. 3,4,5–Trimethoxyamphetamine ........................................................................................................................ 4–Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyamphetamine (DOB) .................................................................................................. 4–Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine (2–CB) ............................................................................................. 4–Methoxyamphetamine .................................................................................................................................. 4–Methylaminorex ............................................................................................................................................
