The Show Cause Order proposed the denial of Respondent’s pending application for a DEA Certificate of Registration as a distributor of the list I chemicals ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, on the ground that his ‘‘registration would be inconsistent with the public interest.’’ Show Cause Order at 1 (quoting 21 U.S.C. 823(h)). More specifically, the Show Cause Order alleged that on November 4, 2005, Respondent pled guilty to conspiring to distribute pseudoephedrine, in violation of 21 U.S.C. 841(c)(2)–(3), and 846. Id. at 2. The Show Cause Order thus alleged that Respondent’s proposed sales of list I chemical products would be inconsistent with the public interest. Id. The Show Cause Order further informed Respondent of his right to request a hearing on the allegations. Id. On June 19, 2006, the Show Cause Order was served on Respondent by certified mail addressed to him at his new residence at the Federal PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Correctional Institution in Sheridan, Oregon. Since that time, neither Respondent, nor anyone purporting to represent him, has responded. Because (1) more than thirty days have passed since service of the Show Cause Order, and (2) Respondent did not timely request a hearing, I conclude that Respondent has waived his right to a hearing. See 21 CFR 1301.43(d). I therefore enter this Final Order without a hearing based on relevant material contained in the investigative file and make the following findings. Findings On December 10, 1999, Respondent applied for a DEA Certificate of Registration to distribute the list I chemicals ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. See 21 U.S.C. 802(34). While both chemicals have therapeutic uses, they are easily extracted from non-prescription drug products and used in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamine, a schedule II controlled substance. See 21 CFR 1308.12(d). Methamphetamine is a powerful and addictive central nervous system stimulant. See Gregg Brothers Wholesale Co., Inc., 71 FR 59830 (2006). As noted in numerous agency orders, the illegal manufacture and abuse of methamphetamine pose a grave threat to this country. Methamphetamine abuse has destroyed numerous lives and families and ravaged communities. Moreover, because of the toxic nature of the chemicals used to make methamphetamine, its manufacture causes serious environmental harms. See, e.g., Id. During the course of investigating Respondent’s application, DEA became aware that he was selling large quantities of pseudoephedrine to an individual he knew was using methamphetamine. Thereafter, Respondent also began supplying pseudoephedrine to several methamphetamine traffickers. Respondent also met with a confidential source and agreed to supply him with twenty to twenty-five cases a month of pseudoephedrine. On March 2, 2005, a federal grand jury returned an indictment which charged Respondent with conspiring to distribute pseudoephedrine, having knowledge and reasonable cause to believe that it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine. First Superseding Indictment, United States v. Sabbagh, et. al., No. CR04–398L, (W.D.Wash.) (citing 21 U.S.C. 841(c) & (e); Id. 846). On March 10, 2005, Respondent pled guilty to the charge, and on November 4, 2005, the United E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1
