    Uh they are not the same substance?

    Some fed swine might try to apply the analog act though.

    I believe that 5-MeO-DMT is only explicitly scheduled in
    Germany, and maybe Australia. Erowid would have more details on
    this.

    The reason for this discrepancy has to due with the history of
    the US Controlled Substances Act (CSA) of 1970, as well as the
    clandestine military "research" that was being conducted with
    psychedelics, mostly in the 1950's. Perhaps amongst the myriad of
    obscure and bizarre substances that the government was randomly
    injecting into hapless mental health and drug-dependent patients,
    5-MeO-DMT just didn't happen to be one of them.



    EDIT: According to Erowid, 5-MeO-DMT is explicitly
    scheduled in a few other European countries, including I believe Sweden
    and Greece. It is also C-I in the US state of South Dakota.

    Just how illegal is DMT considered in the United States? Rumour has it that it can be sold legally here in some places and I just want to find out some info about its status and its dangers because I don't know much about it to be honest.

    You have heard it is sold legally?

    What I think is more likely is that plant sources of DMT
    are sold legally. Example Mimosa Hostilis rootbark has an average of
    .57% DMT. I can buy this plant legally but if I were to extract the DMT
    or process it for human consumption in some way then Id be commiting a
    felony. Pretty [email protected]$#% up huh?

    N,N, DMT is scheduled by the UN convention on psychotropic substances of 1971, which means it is illegal in all UN countries.

    The main difference between DMT and 5MeO-DMT is the intensity of the experience. Many believe that 5MeO-DMT is more powerful, especially when compared in the size of the dose. When you combine the two drugs, it's commonly referred to as the power(5MeO-DMT) and the glory(DMT). SWIM loves the power and the glory. On several occasions, he did it over 3 times in a 24 hour period.
