Schedules of Controlled Substances: Extension of Temporary Placement of THJ-2201, AB-PINACA and AB-CHMINACA in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act
The Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration is issuing this temporary order to extend the temporary schedule I status of three synthetic cannabinoids pursuant to the temporary scheduling provisions of the Controlled Substances Act. The substances are: [1-(5- Fluoropentyl)-1H-indazol-3-yl](naphthalen-1-yl)methanone (THJ-2201); N- 1-Amino-3-methyl-1-oxo-2-butanyl]-1-pentyl-1H-indazole-3-carb oxamide (AB-PINACA); N-[1-Amino-3-methyl-1-oxo-2-butanyl]-1-(cyclohexylmethyl)- 1H-indazole-3-carboxamide (AB-CHMINACA), including their optical, positional and geometric isomers, salts, and salts of isomers. The current final order temporarily placing THJ-2201, AB-PINACA and AB- CHMINACA into schedule I is in effect through January 29, 2017. This order will extend the temporary scheduling of THJ-2201, AB-PINACA and AB-CHMINACA for one year, or until the permanent scheduling action for these three substances is completed, whichever occurs first.
Schedules of Controlled Substances: Placement of AB-CHMINACA, AB-PINACA and THJ-2201 Into Schedule I
The Drug Enforcement Administration proposes placing N-(1- amino-3-methyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)-1-(cyclohexylmethyl)-1H-indaz ole-3- carboxamide (AB-CHMINACA), N-(1-amino-3-methyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)-1- pentyl-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide (AB-PINACA) and [1-(5-fluoropentyl)- 1H-indazol-3-yl](naphthalen-1-yl)methanone (THJ-2201), including their salts, isomers, and salts of isomers whenever the existence of such salts, isomers, and salts of isomers is possible, into schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. This proposed scheduling action is pursuant to the Controlled Substances Act which requires that such actions be made on the record after opportunity for a hearing through formal rulemaking. If finalized, this action would continue to impose the regulatory controls and administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions applicable to schedule I controlled substances on persons who handle (manufacture, distribute, import, export, engage in research, conduct instructional activities or chemical analysis, or possess), or propose to handle AB-CHMINACA, AB-PINACA and THJ-2201.
Schedules of Controlled Substances: Temporary Placement of Six Synthetic Cannabinoids (5F-ADB, 5F-AMB, 5F-APINACA, ADB-FUBINACA, MDMB-CHMICA and MDMB-FUBINACA) Into Schedule I
The Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration is issuing this notice of intent to temporarily schedule six synthetic cannabinoids: Methyl 2-(1-(5-fluoropentyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamido)- 3,3-dimethylbutanoate [5F-ADB; 5F-MDMB-PINACA]; methyl 2-(1-(5- fluoropentyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamido)-3-methylbutanoate [5F-AMB]; N- (adamantan-1-yl)-1-(5-fluoropentyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide [5F- APINACA, 5F-AKB48]; N-(1-amino-3,3-dimethyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)-1-(4- fluorobenzyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide [ADB-FUBINACA]; methyl 2-(1- (cyclohexylmethyl)-1H-indole-3-carboxamido)-3,3-dimethylbutan oate [MDMB-CHMICA, MMB-CHMINACA] and methyl 2-(1-(4-fluorobenzyl)-1H- indazole-3-carboxamido)-3,3-dimethylbutanoate [MDMB-FUBINACA], into schedule I pursuant to the temporary scheduling provisions of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This action is based on a finding by the Administrator that the placement of these synthetic cannabinoids into schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act is necessary to avoid an imminent hazard to the public safety. Any final order will impose the administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions and regulatory controls applicable to schedule I substances under the Controlled Substances Act on the manufacture, distribution, possession, importation, exportation of, and research and conduct with, instructional activities of these synthetic cannabinoids.
