ACMD request for temporary class drug order to control novel psychoactive substances (May 2013)

ACMD request for temporary class drug order to control novel psychoactive substances (May 2013)

  1. kimotag
    Opening paragraph, from Prof. Les Iversen (chair of the ACMD) to the UK Home Office:

    I am writing to formally request that you consider laying a temporary class drug order (TCDO) pursuant to section 2A of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 on the following two groups of novel psychoactive substances (NPS). We consider the laying of TCDOs is appropriate as a pre-emptive measure in advance of the summer music festival season. Both classes of drugs have been associated with serious harm and drug-related deaths.

    The substances recommended for control are:

    5- and 6-APB: (1-(benzofuran-5-yl)-propan-2-amine and 1-(benzofuran-6-yl)-propan-2-amine) and their N-methyl derivatives.

    5- and 6-APDB: (1-(2,3-dihydro-1-benzofuran-5-yl)-propan-2-amine and 1-(2,3-dihydro-1-benzofuran-6-yl)-propan-2-amine), and their N-methyl derivatives.

    5- and 6-IT: (2-(1H-indol-5-yl)-1-methylethylamine and 2-(1H-indol-6-yl)-1-methylethylamine).

    25D-NBOMe: 2-(2,5-Dimethoxy-4-methylphenyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl)methyl]ethanamine

    25B-NBOMe: 2-(4-Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl)methyl]ethanamine

    25I-NBOMe: 2-(4-Iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl)methyl]ethanamine

    25C-NBOMe: 2-(4-Chloro-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl)methyl]ethanamine
