    Good question! It is not listed in the misuse of drugs act, but there is a passage there which refers to certain modificationsof scheduled substances. Is there someone who can shed some light on this matter? Hereyou can findthe misuse of drugs act:http://www.ukcia.org/pollaw/lawlibrary/updatedMoDA1971.html


    What it boils down to is if the folowing definitions cover methylone or not:


    any compound (not being methoxyphenamine or a compound for the time being specified in sub-paragraph (a) above) structurally derived from phenethylamine, an N-alkylphenethylamine, a-methylphenethylamine, an N- alkyl-a-methyl-phenethylamine, a-ethylphenethylamine, or an N-alkyl-a- ethylphenethylamine by substitution in the ring to any extent with alkyl, alkoxy, alkylenedioxy or halide substituents, whether or not further substituted in the ring by one or more other univalent substituents.
    any compound (not being a compound for the time being specified in sub- paragraph (a) above structurally derived from fentanyl by modification in any of the following ways, that is to say,
    (i) by replacement of the phenyl portion of the phenethyl group by any heteromonocycle whether or not further substituted in the heterocycle;
    (ii) by substitution in the phenethyl group with alkyl, alkenyl, alkoxy, hydroxy, halogeno, haloalkyl, amino or nitro groups;
    (iii) by substitution in the piperidine ring with alkyl or alkenyl groups;
    (iv) by substitution in the aniline ring with alkyl, alkoxy, alkylenedioxy, halogeno or haloalkyl groups;
    (v) by substitution at the 4-position of the piperidine ring with any alkoxycarbonyl or alkoxyalkyl or acyloxy group;
    (vi) by replacement of the N-propionyl group by another acyl group;
    any compound (not being a compound for the time being specified in sub- paragraph (a) above) structurally derived from pethidine by modification in any of the following ways, that is to say,
    (i) by replacement of the 1-methyl group by an acyl, alkyl whether or not unsaturated, benzyl or phenethyl group, whether or not further substituted;
    (ii) by substitution in the piperidine ring with alkyl or alkenyl groups or with a propano bridge, whether or not further substituted;
    (iii) by substitution in the 4-phenyl ring with alkyl, alkoxy, aryloxy, halogeno or haloalkyl groups;
    (iv) by replacement of the 4-ethoxycarbonyl by any other alkoxycarbonyl or any alkoxyalkyl or acyloxy group;
    (v) by formation of an N-oxide or of a quaternary base.Edited by: Alfa

    Technically the statute covers everything with a backbone of PEA.


    but does not specifically mention a keto-group substitution. the closest it comes to is in the


    (ii) by substitution in the phenethyl group with alkyl, alkenyl, alkoxy, hydroxy, halogeno, haloalkyl, amino or nitro groups;
    (iv) by substitution in the aniline ring with alkyl, alkoxy, alkylenedioxy, halogeno or haloalkyl groups;



    Methylone is almost identical to MDMA except for the keto group that they would probably bust you even though it is not specifically mentioned.

    2-methylamino 2,5 (dimethoxyphenyl)propiophenone if that or a similar sounding chemical is'nt on that list that might mean its semi-legal in uk for now

    Found this information on an other forum:

    Just to point out that this is illegal in new zealand due to the part 7 of the schedule 3 of the misuse of drugs act.
    ____________________________________________________________ ________________


    AMPHETAMINE ANALOGUES, in which the 1-amino-2- &n bsp; phenylethane nucleus carries any of the  &nb sp;following radicals, either alone or in combination:


    (a)1 or 2 alkyl radicals, each with up to 6 carbon atoms, attached to the nitrogen atom:


    (b)1 or 2 methyl radicals, or an ethyl radical, attached to the carbon atom adjacent to the nitrogen atom:


    (c)A hydroxy radical, attached to the carbon atom adjacent to the benzene ring:


    (d)Any combination of up to 5 alkyl radicals and/or alkoxy radicals and/or alkylamino radicals (each with up to 6 carbon atoms, including cyclic radicals) and/or halogen radicals and/or nitro radicals and/or amino radicals, attached to the benzene ring.
    ____________________________________________________________ _______________

    Methylone is chemically known as Methylenedioxymethcathinone.
    MDMA/Ecstasy is chemically Methylenedioxymethamphetamine.

    If you are caught with this in your posession here in New Zealand expect a serious penalty. Especially for the importation of said chemical. Methylone is meant to be very fun, similar to good E, and shouldn't really be illegal, as with nearly all drugs. But hey, thats another argument.

    But here is why it is. How many people do you know that only take one BZP herbal. If you were to take four of these, you would enter into a NOT good place. It would be like dropping 6 or 7 strong E pills. Serotonin depletion is not a good thing for your body or your mind. People would go out, not having a clue that what they were taking would have the potential to kill them/land them in a coma in hospital, and take a tube of them because they wanted to feel it 'harder'. Just because its sold for fun, doesn't mean it can't kill you.

    It feels like Ecstasy because it is working in very similar ways.

    Also find this:

    Methylone isn't a CD in the UK (yet), as of 01/01/05. The UK doesn't have an analogue act in the sense of the US or Germany, so if it's not specifically listed as a CD, then you can buy and import it, even if you intend to run 'round telling everybody that you're taking it.

    The reason I know is that before AMT became scheduled in the US (and hence most Research Chemical suppliers having to cease selling it), I had an order containing 2g of AMT opened and looked at by H.M.Customs. They packaged it back up and sent it to me fairly quickly. On that basis, methylone should be no problem.

    If you look on the European Drugs Discussion board there, there's a thread about the legality of methylone where I fully explained the reasoning behind methylone not being covered by the phenethylamines derivatives paragraph of the Misuse of Drugs Act (and why the IDMU bod is wrong about 5-methoxy AMT).

    Found it:


    "We (the UK) don't have an analogue act; we have a pretty comprehensive derivatives sub paragraph, but it's far from being a coverall, as there are plenty of hallucinogens that fall outside the act (as well as stimulants, depressants, opiates, dissociative.. you get my drift). Well, anyway, methylone falls outside the phenethylamines derivatives of the misuse of drugs act.

    The reasoning behind it?

    All of the compounds in PIHKAL that fell outside the phenethylamine derivatives para. were specifically scheduled about 2 years ago, to prevent anyone from trying to trip legally; the items were blanket scheduled, as even ones labelled inactive by shulgin were included. Now, one of the ones specifically named as being outside the derivs para was BODH, which is 4-methyl-2,5-dimethoxy-beta-hydroxyphenethylamine.

    So by that reasoning, any variation from phenethylamine (amphetamine or alpha-ethylphenethylamine), such as a beta-hydroxyphenethylamine, isn't specifically covered by that paragraph. So if a beta-hydroxyphenethylamine is outside the act, then a beta-keto group (which is what methylone has) is also outside the act. This also means that any ring substituted cathinone or methcathinone derivative is outside the act, should anyone come across them, as they are not specifically named.


    Don't expect it to be uncontrolled for long though; once the powers that be cotton on to what's happening, expect to see it scheduled at some point in the future."

    Keto substitution is definitely not mentioned in the statute as
    written, so technically methylone is not covered by that statute.
    How far UK authorities might go in hassling you anyway, I have no idea.

    I recently purchased a bottle of liquid called "Explosion" from a Smart shop in Birmingham, UK. It looks exactly like the bottle that is reported to contain between 120 and 180 grams of methylone. Just thought I'd let people know.



    I presume it is legal then? Or at least its legality is considered to be a grey area. It is sold as a room odorisor with instructions "do not drink"written on thelabel (for legal reasons apparently - I've tried it at it has the effects descrbed by experience reports, it isn't just some toxic liquid).Edited by: ramjet

    Methylone is not scheduled in the UK. That's pretty amazing that there's
    still Explosion left for sale - it's almost three months since the ban in the
    NL. I've read reports that methylone is not very stable in solution, so you
    may want to dry them out to powder, or store them in the refrigerator.

    All the Explosions I've seen have contained about 240-250mg when dried
    out.Edited by: radiometer

    Methylone is banned in Sweden now. See the law and order forum for more info.

    Re: methylone legality uk

    It would seem that since it is not a phenethylamine it falls outside UK law atm. But this is not definitive and if You is caught with it he can expect to have some explaining to do.

    In future please use the search engine. This question has been answered so many times...

    legality of methylone in France ?

    could somebody please clear up the situation.
    As far as swim knows, there's no law on analogs in France but isomers are technically illegal.
    Is 2-methylamino-1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-1-propanone HCl
    legal in this country, I am a little lost in the list.

    here is the latest official list I could lay his hands on :

    Re: legality of methylone in France ?

    The methylone does not appear in this list.
    As far as I know the substance Methylone is not illegal in France.

    But you have to know that everything is shown or sold as a drug is illegal. This is why you can't find Methylone in official shop.

    There is a "legal hole" on this substance like some other RCs. You have to handle it with care, because even is not illegal, if the police find you with a white powder in a plastic bag that enough for them to do a perquisition or a house-search.

    Re: legality of methylone in France ?

    thanks for the answer. I was wondering about the N-méthyl-1-(3,4- méthylènedioxyphényl)-2-butanamine - entry, mostly.
    Still, despite the regulation issue, I wonder what the reaction of customs would be. I guess the "legal" product would be confiscated at the least. there's really no info on such subjects and no way to get proper information without bringing unwanted attention on one's self...makes you you wish for the anglo-saxon "no corners cut" attitude at times...

    Legality of Methylone in Ireland?

    I was just wondering if anyone was aware of the legal status of Methylone in the Rep. of Ireland? I know that it is illegal now to trade in methylone in the Netherlands and that the UK ammended thier phenethylamines law in 2004 to catch it, I was just wondering if its covered by Irish law? This is the Irish statute concerning phenethylamines here, https://drugs-forum.com/threads/34814
    in paragraph 1(c) of that link, but that might aswell be in ancient hebrew for all the sense swim can make of it. Maybe a freindly chemist/lawyer could take a look and let swim know if methylone is covered.

    Re: Legality of Methylone in Ireland?

    To the best of my knowledge methylone is not illegal in Ireland. Our laws regarding Research Chemicals are identical to those of the UK.
    Could you please post the relevant amendment, I have not heard of this. As far as I know ketones are not currently covered by UK law.

    Edit;
    Here is the modification order which came into force in 2004. It deals with the downgrading of cannabis and there is nothing which would effect the legality of methylone.

    This thread about Research Chemicals in the UK is also relevant to Ireland.

    I think Ireland will be quicker to follow EU regulation than UK regulation.
