    SWIM has heard so much about mephedrone/methylone and even went so far as to try to order some from the UK with no luck. He is wondering if there are any RC's that compare to Mephedrone and ARE legal where SWIM lives in the USA.

    In the USA we have something called the Federal Controlled Substance Analogue Act. Since most of these substance (mephedrone, methylone, 4-fmp, mdpv) are modeled after illegal substances (cathinone, amphetamine, mdma) then I would say the answer is no.

    The clause in the FCSAA states that a "chemical substantially similiar" to an illegal substance is illegal.

    That being said their are sites that ship mephedrone and methylone into the US but SWIM doesn't advocate anything illegal.

    Mephedrone is legal in tje states. Its just illegal to sell as a drug. Thats how the analouge act of the csa works. There isnt a wild market for it like in the uk so its harder to find but thats about it

    For a little clarification on the Analogue Act and the legality of substances in the US- many of the RC's are not specifically scheduled/controlled. That does not really make them Legal, especially if one is not a legitimate lab/research company or other industry that has a legitimate use for the substance. Most could be charged/prosecuted under the analog act. This would require a police agency/prosecutor/DA to charge under the analog act, and a court to uphold their status under the analog act.

    In general, these substances are neither Legal nor illegal in a clear sense. By and large they have been left alone. Customs tends to seize them on importation if found, and leave it up to the receiver to file for their release if they feel the seizure was unjustified. Some individual states have, or are moving to explicitly outlaw some substances. The feds it seems tend to wait until a substance causes enough problems for it to be worth their effort to move on them, either with a court case or a request through government channels for reclassification.

    I would not go so far as to say that mephedrone, cannabinoids, etc are truly legal in the US. They may not be scheduled, places may sell them, openly or discreetly, but at any time one could be charged and become the test case...

    Probably selling Mephedrone a Kg is a lot for one kid to move. swiDMT thinks he'd probably been doing it for a while.
