Here is the letter from the DEA to businesses across the USA. The DEA is soliciting information on substances that are related in chemical structure to phenethylamine ...The Controlled Substances Act (CSA), lists certain phenethylamines as schedule I controlled substances. Some phenethylamines that are not controlled under the CSA produce central nervous system effects that are similar to phenethylamines that are controlled under the CSA. DEA is requesting information to help determine the impact on business if these substances were to be placed under control in the CSA.Individuals have published detailed methods of synthesis for substituted phenethylamines and have reported pharmacological effects based on user experiences. Law enforcement personnel encounter such phenethylamines, but because they are substituted differently than those listed or described in the CSA, they are not subject to direct control in schedule I. However, some of these substances can be treated as schedule I controlled substance analogues if intended for human consumption Take notice of the sentence Individuals have published detailed ...pharmacological effects based on user experience. Swim thinks that once the get the responses back from business, they will make Research Chemicals CSAs by using trip reports found on the web instead of testing the drug on volunteers and monitoring the results. So any Research Chemical with a trip report detailing pharmacological effects will be classified as a CSA. Personally, I would like the DEA to do tests on each Research Chemical to determine if there are negative effects on the body. Then if there exists some problem with the RC, detail them before making them illegal. I feel most Research Chemicals are safe and to declare something a CSA based on a web trip report is bogus.
