SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. 826) 
requires the Attorney General to establish aggregate production quotas 
for each basic class of controlled substance listed in schedules I and 
II and for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and 
phenylpropanolamine. The Attorney General has delegated this authority 
to the Administrator of the DEA, 28 CFR 0.100, who in turn has 
redelegated that authority to the Deputy Administrator of the DEA, 28 
CFR part 0, subpart R, App.
    On March 7, 2014, the DEA published in the Federal Register a final 
order to temporarily place 10 synthetic cathinones, 4-methyl-N-
ethylcathinone (4-MEC); 4-methyl-[alpha]-pyrrolidinopropiophenone (4-
MePPP); alpha-pyrrolidinopentiophenone ([alpha]-PVP); 1-(1,3-
benzodioxol-5-yl)-2-(methylamino)butan-1-one (butylone); 2-
(methylamino)-1-phenylpentan-1-one (pentedrone); 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-
yl)-2-(methylamino)pentan-1-one (pentylone); 4-fluoro-N-methylcathinone 
(4-FMC); 3-fluoro-N-methylcathinone (3-FMC); naphthylpyrovalerone 
(naphyrone); and alpha-pyrrolidinobutiophenone ([alpha]-PBP), into 
schedule I of the CSA (79 FR 12938), making all regulations pertaining 
to schedule I controlled substances applicable to the manufacture of 4-
MEC, 4-MePPP, [alpha]-PVP, butylone, pentedrone, pentylone, 4-FMC, 3-
FMC, naphyrone, and [alpha]-PBP, including the requirement to obtain a 
manufacturing quota pursuant to 21 CFR part 1303.
    The 2014 aggregate production quotas for 4-MEC, 4-MePPP, [alpha]-
PVP, butylone, pentedrone, pentylone, 4-FMC, 3-FMC, naphyrone, and 
[alpha]-PBP represent those quantities that may be manufactured in the

    On April 1, 2014, the DEA published a notice titled, ``Controlled 
Substances: 2014 Proposed Aggregate Production Quota for 10 Temporarily 
Controlled Synthetic Cathinones'' in the Federal Register (79 FR

4-MEC, 4-MePPP, [alpha]-PVP, butylone, pentedrone, pentylone, 4-FMC, 3-
FMC, naphyrone, and [alpha]-PBP. Interested persons were invited to 
comment on or object to the proposed aggregate production quotas for 4-
MEC, 4-MePPP, [alpha]-PVP, butylone, pentedrone, pentylone, 4-FMC, 3-
FMC, naphyrone, and [alpha]-PBP on or before May 1, 2014. No comments
