Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 149 / Friday, August 4, 2017 / Notices controlled drug such as Ibuprofen so as not to arouse a pharmacist’s suspicion as to the legality of a controlled substance prescription and induce him to fill the prescription constitutes actionable misconduct under Factor Five. See 77 FR at 64141. Such conduct is, in essence, a form of subterfuge, and may threaten public health and safety by inducing a pharmacist into believing a controlled substance prescription is lawful rather than questioning its validity and refusing to fill it. Cf. 21 U.S.C. 843(a)(3) (‘‘It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly or intentionally . . . to acquire or obtain possession of a controlled substance by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception, or subterfuge.’’). Here, the evidence shows that at the UC’s first visit, Respondent told him that she ‘‘was gonna [sic] give you some ibuprofen. Because if you[’re] filling in Florida which I encourage you to do so you’re on the computer list. Then . . . for two reasons: Number one, the pharmacists usually want a nonprescription drug, a non-controlled substance drug rather . . . and ibuprofen is also good for inflammation.’’ GE 7, at 6. At his second visit, the UC told Respondent that a pharmacist refused to fill the Klonopin prescription she had issued previously. GE 9, at 9. Respondent advised the UC to take the prescription to another pharmacy and told him that it is not doctor-shopping if the pharmacist refused to fill the prescription; she also told the UC that she would ‘‘write that [Klonopin] and I’ll write another non-narcotic.’’ Id. at 10. Respondent subsequently stated she would ‘‘give [the UC] two small prescriptions’’ for ibuprofen and ‘‘one narcotic for each pharmacy that [he] might have to go to.’’ Id. at 16. She added ‘‘I want you to keep the extra ibuprofen so if they won’t fill the Klonopin again you have another nonnarcotic to use.’’ Id. at 17. In advising the UC how to avoid encountering difficulties in filling his prescriptions for controlled substances and in issuing non-narcotic prescriptions to minimize any suspicions by pharmacists, Respondent engaged in ‘‘[s]uch other conduct which may threaten the public health and safety’’). See Perper, 77 FR at 64141. Cf. Nelson A. Smith, 58 FR 65403, 65404 (1993) (holding that using strategies ‘‘to avoid detection . . . such as falsifying patients charts and suggesting that the recipients of . . . illegal prescriptions go to different pharmacies’’ is actionable misconduct under Factor Five). I therefore hold that the Government’s evidence with respect to Factors Two, VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:13 Aug 03, 2017 Jkt 241001 Four, and Five establishes that Registrant ‘‘has committed such acts as would render her registration . . . inconsistent with the public interest.’’ 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(4). Because Respondent waived her right to a hearing (or to submit a written statement in lieu of a hearing), there is no evidence in the record to refute the conclusion that her continued registration is ‘‘inconsistent with the public interest.’’ Id. Accordingly, I will order that Respondent’s registration be revoked and that any pending applications be denied. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b), I order that DEA Certificate of Registration No. AS1456361, issued to Marcia L. Sills, M.D., be, and it hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending application of Marcia L. Sills to renew or modify the above registration, or any pending application of Marcia L. Sills for any other registration, be, and it hereby is, denied. This Order is effective September 5, 2017. Dated: July 27, 2017. Chuck Rosenberg, Acting Administrator.

Legal Authority and Background Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. 826) VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:13 Aug 03, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 function to the Administrator of the DEA pursuant to 28 CFR 0.100. The DEA established the 2017 aggregate production quotas for substances in schedules I and II and the assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine on October 5, 2016 (81 FR 69079). That notice stipulated that, in accordance with 21 CFR 1303.13 and 1315.13, all aggregate production quotas and assessments of annual need are subject to adjustment. Analysis for Proposed Adjusted 2017 Aggregate Production Quotas and Assessment of Annual Needs The DEA proposes to adjust the established 2017 aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs for certain schedule I and II controlled substances, and the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, to be manufactured in the United States in 2017 to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States, for lawful export requirements, and for the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. These quotas do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes. In determining the proposed adjustment, the Acting Administrator has taken into account the criteria in accordance with 21 CFR 1303.13 (adjustment of aggregate production quotas for controlled substances) and 21 CFR 1315.13 (adjustment of the assessment of annual needs for ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine). The DEA determined whether to propose an adjustment of the aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs for 2017 by considering: (1) Changes in the demand for that class or chemical, changes in the national rate of net disposal of the class or chemical, and changes in the rate of net disposal of the class or chemical by registrants holding individual manufacturing quotas for the PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 class; (2) whether any increased demand for that class or chemical, the national and/or individual rates of net disposal of that class or chemical are temporary, short term, or long term; (3) whether any increased demand for that class or chemical can be met through existing inventories, increased individual manufacturing quotas, or increased importation, without increasing the aggregate production quota; (4) whether any decreased demand for that class or chemical will result in excessive inventory accumulation by all persons registered to handle that class or chemical; and (5) other factors affecting medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs in the United States and lawful export requirements, as the Acting Administrator finds relevant. These quotas do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes. The Acting Administrator also considered updated information obtained from 2016 year-end inventories, 2016 disposition data submitted by quota applicants, estimates of the medical needs of the United States, product development, and other information made available to the DEA after the initial aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs had been established. Other factors the Acting Administrator considered in calculating the aggregate production quotas, but not the assessment of annual needs, include product development requirements of both bulk and finished dosage form manufacturers, and other pertinent information. In determining the proposed adjusted 2017 assessment of annual needs, the DEA used the calculation methodology previously described in the 2010 and 2011 established assessment of annual needs (74 FR 60294, Nov. 20, 2009, and 75 FR 79407, Dec. 20, 2010, respectively). The Acting Administrator, therefore, proposes that the year 2017 aggregate production quotas for the nine temporarily scheduled substances be established, and to adjust the 2017 aggregate production quotas for certain schedule I and II controlled substances and assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base, as follows: E:\FR\FM\04AUN1.SGM 04AUN1 36451 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 149 / Friday, August 4, 2017 / Notices Established 2017 quotas (g) Basic class Proposed Revised 2017 quotas (g) Temporarily Scheduled Substances 4-Fluoroisobutyryl fentanyl .............................................................................................................................. 5F–ADB; 5F–MDMB–PINACA (methyl 2-(1-(5-fluoropentyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamido)-3,3dimethylbutanoate). 5F–AMB (methyl 2-(1-(5-fluoropentyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamido)-3-methylbutanoate) ............................. 5F–APINACA; 5F–AKB48 (N-(adamantan-1-yl)-1-(5-fluoropentyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide) ..................

Legal Authority and 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 function 
to the Administrator of the DEA pursuant to 28 CFR 0.100.
    The DEA established the 2017 aggregate production quotas for 
substances in schedules I and II and the assessment of annual needs for 
the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and 
phenylpropanolamine on October 5, 2016 (81 FR 69079). That notice 
stipulated that, in accordance with 21 CFR 1303.13 and 1315.13, all 
aggregate production quotas and assessments of annual need are subject 
to adjustment.

Analysis for Proposed Adjusted 2017 Aggregate Production Quotas and 
Assessment of Annual Needs

    The DEA proposes to adjust the established 2017 aggregate 
production quotas and assessment of annual needs for certain schedule I 
and II controlled substances, and the list I chemicals ephedrine, 
pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, to be manufactured in the 
United States in 2017 to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, 
research, and industrial needs of the United States, for lawful export 
requirements, and for the establishment and maintenance of reserve 
stocks. These quotas do not include imports of controlled substances 
for use in industrial processes.
    In determining the proposed adjustment, the Acting Administrator 
has taken into account the criteria in accordance with 21 CFR 1303.13 
(adjustment of aggregate production quotas for controlled substances) 
and 21 CFR 1315.13 (adjustment of the assessment of annual needs for 
ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine). The DEA 
determined whether to propose an adjustment of the aggregate production 
quotas and assessment of annual needs for 2017 by considering: (1) 
Changes in the demand for that class or chemical, changes in the 
national rate of net disposal of the class or chemical, and changes in 
the rate of net disposal of the class or chemical by registrants 
holding individual manufacturing quotas for the class; (2) whether any 
increased demand for that class or chemical, the national and/or 
individual rates of net disposal of that class or chemical are 
temporary, short term, or long term; (3) whether any increased demand 
for that class or chemical can be met through existing inventories, 
increased individual manufacturing quotas, or increased importation, 
without increasing the aggregate production quota; (4) whether any 
decreased demand for that class or chemical will result in excessive 
inventory accumulation by all persons registered to handle that class 
or chemical; and (5) other factors affecting medical, scientific, 
research, and industrial needs in the United States and lawful export 
requirements, as the Acting Administrator finds relevant. These quotas 
do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial 
processes.
    The Acting Administrator also considered updated information 
obtained from 2016 year-end inventories, 2016 disposition data 
submitted by quota applicants, estimates of the medical needs of the 
United States, product development, and other information made 
available to the DEA after the initial aggregate production quotas and 
assessment of annual needs had been established. Other factors the 
Acting Administrator considered in calculating the aggregate production 
quotas, but not the assessment of annual needs, include product 
development requirements of both bulk and finished dosage form 
manufacturers, and other pertinent information. In determining the 
proposed adjusted 2017 assessment of annual needs, the DEA used the 
calculation methodology previously described in the 2010 and 2011 
established assessment of annual needs (74 FR 60294, Nov. 20, 2009, and 
75 FR 79407, Dec. 20, 2010, respectively).
    The Acting Administrator, therefore, proposes that the year 2017 
aggregate production quotas for the nine temporarily scheduled 
substances be established, and to adjust the 2017 aggregate production 
quotas for certain schedule I and II controlled substances and 
assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, 
pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, expressed in grams of 
anhydrous acid or base, as follows:

    The Acting Administrator further proposes that aggregate production 
quotas for all other schedule I and II controlled substances included 
in 21 CFR 1308.11 and 1308.12 remain at zero. In accordance with 21 CFR 
1303.13 and 21 CFR 1315.13, upon consideration of the relevant factors, 
the Acting Administrator may adjust the 2017 aggregate production 
quotas and assessment of annual needs as needed.

Conclusion

    After consideration of any comments or objections, or after a 
hearing, if one is held, the Acting Administrator will issue and 
publish in the Federal Register a final order establishing any 
adjustment of 2017 aggregate production quota for each basic class of 
controlled substances in schedules I and II and established assessment 
of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, 
and phenylpropanolamine, 21 CFR 1303.13(c) and 1315.13(f).

    Dated: July 27, 2017.
