Schedules of Controlled Substances: Temporary Placement of 5F-EDMB-PINACA, 5F-MDMB-PICA, FUB-AKB48, 5F-CUMYL-PINACA, and FUB-144 in Schedule I
The Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration is issuing this notice of intent to publish a temporary order to schedule the synthetic cannabinoids (SCs), ethyl 2-(1-(5- fluoropentyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamido)-3,3-dimethylbutanoat e (trivial name: 5F-EDMB-PINACA); methyl 2-(1-(5-fluoropentyl)-1H-indole-3- carboxamido)-3,3-dimethylbutanoate (trivial name: 5F-MDMB-PICA); N- (adamantan-1-yl)-1-(4-fluorobenzyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide (trivial name: FUB-AKB48; FUB-APINACA; AKB48 N-(4-FLUOROBENZYL)); 1-(5- fluoropentyl)-N-(2-phenylpropan-2-yl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxami de (trivial names: 5F-CUMYL-PINACA; SGT-25); and (1-(4-fluorobenzyl)-1H- indol-3-yl)(2,2,3,3-tetramethylcyclopropyl) methanone (trivial name: FUB-144), in schedule I. This action is based on a finding by the Acting Administrator that the placement of these SCs in schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) is necessary to avoid an imminent hazard to the public safety. When it is issued, the temporary scheduling order will impose regulatory requirements under the CSA on the manufacture, distribution, reverse distribution, possession, importation, exportation, research, and conduct of instructional activities, and chemical analysis of these SCs, as well as administrative, civil, and criminal remedies with respect to persons who fail to comply with such requirements or otherwise violate the CSA with respect to these substances.
