SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) prohibits the cultivation and distribution of marihuana except by persons who are registered under the CSA to do so for lawful purposes. In accordance with the purposes specified in 21 CFR 1301.33(a), DEA is providing notice that the entity identified below has applied for registration as a bulk manufacturer of schedule I controlled substances. In response, registered bulk manufacturers of the affected basic classes, and applicants therefor, may file written comments on or objections of the requested registration, as provided in this notice. This notice does not constitute any evaluation or determination of the merits of the application submitted. The applicant plans to manufacture bulk active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) for product development and distribution to DEA registered researchers. If its application for registration is granted, the registrant would not be authorized to conduct other activity under this registration aside from those coincident activities specifically authorized by DEA regulations. DEA will evaluate the application for registration as a bulk manufacturer for compliance with all applicable laws, treaties, and regulations and to ensure adequate safeguards against diversion are in place. As this applicant has applied to become registered as a Bulk Manufacturer of Marihuana, the application will be evaluated under the criteria of 21 U.S.C. 823(a) as described in 84 FR 44920, published on August 27, 2019. In accordance with 21 CFR 1301.33(a), DEA is providing notice that on November 1, 2019, Agronomed Pharmaceuticals, 740 Springdale Drive, Suite 130, Exton, Pennsylvania 19341– 2876 applied to be registered as a bulk manufacturer of the following basic class of controlled substances: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Controlled substance Marihuana ...............
