Controlled Substances: 2014 Proposed Aggregate Production Quota for Three Temporarily Controlled Synthetic Phenethylamines
Three synthetic phenethylamines 2-(4-iodo-2,5- dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25I-NBOMe; 2C-I-NBOMe; 25I; Cimbi-5), 2-(4-chloro-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2- methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25C-NBOMe; 2C-C-NBOMe; 25C; Cimbi-82), and 2- (4-bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25B-NBOMe; 2C-B-NBOMe; 25B; Cimbi-36) were temporarily placed in schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) by a final order published by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on November 15, 2013 (78 FR 68716). This means that any manufacturer that wishes to manufacture 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, or 25B-NBOMe after November 15, 2013, must be registered with the DEA and have obtained a manufacturing quota for 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, or 25B-NBOMe pursuant to 21 CFR part 1303. The DEA cannot issue individual manufacturing quotas for 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, or 25B- NBOMe unless and until it establishes an aggregate production quota. Therefore, this notice proposes a 2014 aggregate production quota for 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe.
Office of the Attorney General; Amendment of Americans with Disabilities Act Title II and Title III Regulations to Implement ADA Amendments Act of 2008
The Department of Justice (Department) is issuing this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations in order to incorporate the statutory changes to the ADA set forth in the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADA Amendments Act or the Act), which took effect on January 1, 2009. Congress enacted the ADA Amendments Act in order to revise the ADA definition of ``disability'' and to ensure that the definition is broadly construed and applied without extensive analysis. In this NPRM, the Department is proposing to add new sections to its title II and title III ADA regulations at 28 CFR parts 35 and 36, respectively, to provide detailed definitions of ``disability'' and to make consistent changes in other sections of the regulations. The ADA Amendments Act authorizes the Attorney General to issue regulations consistent with the Act that implement the definitions of ``disability'' in sections 3 and 4 of the Act, including the rules of construction set forth in section 3. The Department invites written comments from members of the public on this proposed rule.
Schedules of Controlled Substances: Temporary Placement of 10 Synthetic Cathinones into Schedule I
The Deputy Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is issuing this notice of intent to temporarily schedule 10 synthetic cathinones into schedule I pursuant to the temporary scheduling provisions of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The 10 substances are: (1) 4-methyl-N-ethylcathinone (``4-MEC''); (2) 4-methyl-alpha-pyrrolidinopropiophenone (``4-MePPP''); (3) alpha- pyrrolidinopentiophenone (``[alpha]-PVP''); (4) 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5- yl)-2-(methylamino)butan-1-one (``butylone''); (5) 2-(methylamino)-1- phenylpentan-1-one (``pentedrone''); (6) 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl)-2- (methylamino)pentan-1-one (``pentylone''); (7) 4-fluoro-N- methylcathinone (``4-FMC''); (8) 3-fluoro-N-methylcathinone (``3- FMC''); (9) 1-(naphthalen-2-yl)-2-(pyrrolidin-1-yl)pentan-1-one (``naphyrone''); and (10) alpha-pyrrolidinobutiophenone (``[alpha]- PBP''). This action is based on a finding by the Deputy Administrator that the placement of these synthetic cathinones into schedule I of the CSA is necessary to avoid an imminent hazard to the public safety. Any final order will be published in the Federal Register and may not be effective prior to February 27, 2014. Any final order will impose the administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions and regulatory controls applicable to schedule I substances under the CSA on the manufacture, distribution, possession, importation, exportation, research, and conduct of instructional activities of these synthetic cathinones.
