    I have fallen behind with maintaining the map and chart. Pennsylvania and I'm sure a few other states have passed bans, and I think a couple more go into effect on July first- I will try and get things updated soon but for now consider this at least a month or two out of date.

    Re: USA- Changing legal status of mephedrone, MDPV, and "bath Salts"

    MDPV, mephedrone, Methylone, – Methoxymethcathinone, 3- Fluoromethcathinone, and 4 – Fluoromethcathinone, are all banned now in florida. Since thursday jan 27th.


    Thismorning the Florida Attorney General Bondi put an ‘Emergency Control’ on the ingredients in drugs sold as ‘bath salts’. they did this in the same manner as the DEA and the ban of JWH chemicals (k2 smoke), a hastily made report with little to no real facts about what they are banning. Just read it-

    RULE TITLE: RULE NO.:
    Addition of 3,4 – Methylenedioxymethcathinone (Methylone),
    3,4 – Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV),
    4 – Methylmethcathinone (Mephedrone),
    3 – Methoxymethcathinone, 3- Fluoromethcathinone,
    and 4 – Fluoromethcathinone, to Schedule I, Subsection 893.03(1), F.S. 2ER11-1


    SPECIFIC REASONS FOR FINDING AN IMMEDIATE DANGER TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH, SAFETY OR
    WELFARE:
    In written findings published on the date this emergency rule was filed with the Secretary of State’s
    Office, Attorney General Bondi has found that there is a need to immediately place the above-mentioned
    compounds commonly known as “bath salts” under Schedule I, Subsection 893.03(1), F.S., in order to curtail the
    abuse of “bath salts” by Florida’s children and young adults. These circumstances present an immediate and
    imminent hazard to the public health, safety, and welfare which requires emergency action. In addition the
    Attorney General has found that the above-mentioned compounds meet the statutory criteria for placement as a
    controlled substance in Schedule I, Subsection 893.03(1), F.S.
    REASONS FOR CONCLUDING THAT THE PROCEDURE USED IS FAIR UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES:
    The above-mentioned compounds commonly known as “bath salts” present an immediate and imminent hazard to
    the public health, safety, and welfare which requires emergency action. The Attorney General will ask the Florida
    Legislature to memorialize this action through legislation in its 2011 legislative session. The Attorney General will
    immediately begin rulemaking procedures if the Legislature fails to act. A copy of the Attorney General’s findings
    in support of this emergency rule may be obtained by contacting the Office of the Attorney General, PL-01, The
    Capitol, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1050; (850) 245-0145.


    SUMMARY OF THE RULE: Under the authority of Section 893.05, Florida Statutes, the substances 3,4 -
    Methylenedioxymethcathinone (Methylone), 3,4 – Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), 4 -
    Methylmethcathinone (Mephedrone), 3 – Methoxymethcathinone, 3- Fluoromethcathinone, and 4 -
    Fluoromethcathinone, are being added to Schedule I, Subsection 893.03(1), F.S. THE PERSON TO BE CONTACTED REGARDING THE EMERGENCY RULE IS: Kent Perez, Associate
    Deputy Attorney General, PL-01, The Capitol, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1050
    RULE TITLE: RULE NO.: Addition of 3,4 – Methylenedioxymethcathinone (Methylone), 3,4 – Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), 4 – Methylmethcathinone (Mephedrone), 3 – Methoxymethcathinone, 3- Fluoromethcathinone, and 4 – Fluoromethcathinone, to Schedule I, Subsection 893.03(1), F.S. 2ER11-1 SPECIFIC REASONS FOR FINDING AN IMMEDIATE DANGER TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH, SAFETY OR WELFARE: In written findings published on the date this emergency rule was filed with the Secretary of State’s Office, Attorney General Bondi has found that there is a need to immediately place the above-mentioned compounds commonly known as “bath salts” under Schedule I, Subsection 893.03(1), F.S., in order to curtail the abuse of “bath salts” by Florida’s children and young adults.

    Now check out what the Florida AG said about it:


    “It makes you think you’re seeing monsters and it also makes you think that you can fly and there are a lot of balconies out there,” Bondi said at a hastily called news conference.”

    True that.. looks like someone had a bad time.

    Bondi issued a 90-day emergency order that went into effect immediately. It makes the sale or possession of the drug a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison. That’s the same penalty as for similar crimes involving cocaine or heroin.

    Re: USA- Changing legal status of mephedrone, MDPV, and "bath Salts"

    DAMMIT! SWIM hates that this is happening, but it's inevitable once a drug gets popular and is involved in overdoses/side effects. But methylone? Has anyone even died from that in the history of...EVER?! It's not even on the DEA "Chemicals of Concern" list.

    Wonder how this will affect vendors? So far, none that SWIM has seen have refused to send these "bath salts" to customers in the aforementioned states. Anyone heard whether any bans are pending in Nevada?

    So does this mean that various research chemical companies will NOT be sending out the above-mentioned materials, say to Florida, for example? I agree with you Lady Codone, it was only a matter of time before such a precious material like Arlone (Methylone) went up for it's turn on the chopping block.

    Yes, Unless they want to risk charges for dealing a Schedule I substance


    Momentum is building at the Federal level to ban these substances.:

    Re: USA- Changing legal status of mephedrone, MDPV, and "bath Salts"

    I have been trying to follow this closely since the unfollowed through December 24th ban. Most merchants of incense and bath salts around this area pulled them from the shelves quickly and kept them under the counter for weeks after, unknowing of what was going on and what products were effected. The dea's page gives little detail of future actions. I was even on it Feb. 27 and read nothing of the jwh ban going officially into effect. Good idea for a thread. It may be benefical to many to post any reliable information heard of future bans or meetings of the subject by state officials.
    If only there was a way to hit the brakes of this wheel in motion.

    I apoligize for the clutter. I was simply stating that it's nice that there's a thread on the topic. It was quite confusing for some after December 24th. Thus, keeping updates and documented links for terms is a good idea.
    There I go again, rambling and making clutter.

    "February 22nd, Alabama became the 5 state to ban chemicals due to this recent bath salt stir up. Unlike Florida, which had banned 5 chemicals likely to be in most bath salts, Alabama went straight for the kill (IMO) by banning both Methylenedioxypyrovalerone and Mephedrone.
    "These two chemicals are deadly and cause tremendous health issues," Deborah Soule, executive director of Alabama's Partnership for a Drug-Free Community. "They pose a threat to the well-being of young people and anyone who uses them."
    -Found this in an articul on a search engine page called Life's Little Mysteries, by staff writer Remy Melina. Under post limit for links.

    Heard from a good source that on the 15th (in 4 days) a ban consisting of several states, or possible actions on a federal level, will be put into place to ban a number of chemicals known to be in bath salts.

    Swim's little pet sugar glider heard from a little birdie that people are still receiving this post's mentioned materials. Can anyone verify or refute some of the chatter swim's little sugar glider has been hearing? Swim's pet sugar glider is confused as to if the said materials are actually scheduled, or being suggested for a scheduling.

    ^^ they are not scheduled federally, though the feds are persuing an analog act prosecution of a mephedrone vendor and the state of Tennessee is pursuing a unique prosecution of mephedrone based "bath salts".

    More and more states are banning mephedrone and MDPV, as well as a few others.

    There has also been talk from the Drug Czar, Congress, and the President regarding these chemicals. At best- their days are numbered, and the legal risks associated with them are greatly increased.

    Re: USA- Changing legal status of mephedrone, MDPV, and "bath Salts"

    I must say, the local corner store up the street has been quite busy these past couple of nights. The owner told me people started freaking out about 4 days ago because they couldn't find bath salts anywhere else and he sold out his stock that night. Tonight he was stocked up plenty, with a smile and a fat pocket.

    Tonight I decided to check up on some Mephedrone and MDPV vendors online, and many sites were either sold out or not taking orders at this time. I wonder were this rumor or leak is coming from. I can't seem to find anything reliable in writing on the web.

    Re: USA- Changing legal status of mephedrone, MDPV, and "bath Salts"

    The bill introduced by NY Senator Charles Schumer into the US Congress to ban mephedrone and MDPV at the federal level.


    This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Introduced bills and resolutions first go to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills and resolutions never make it out of committee. [Last Updated: Mar 11, 2011 6:17AM]

    Feb 17, 2011: Read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

    IT"S ALL GOING TO BE OVER SOON!!!!WV is on its way to banning to SALE of "Bath Salts" Doesn't say anything in the article about the USE of Bath Salts. I haven't been able to find the bill on line.

    CHARLESTON WV-On Saturday March 13, the West Virginia Legislature approved a bill that makes buying or selling bath salts a misdemeanor. It's now waiting on acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's signature.
    CHARLESTON GAZETTE MARCH 15, 2011

    Virginia has already done it, main difference ITS A FELONY in VA. and the law mentions posession and use.

    RICHMOND VA- General Assembly has unanimously approved legislation to criminalize the possession and distribution of synthetic marijuana, and added in so-called "bath salts" for good measure
    The Virginian-Pilot- February 27, 2011

    The products available for purchase lately have been getting worse and worse in quality anyway. It's prolly for the best, god knows what someone is actually buying now. It's all garbage

    Original post deleted and updated with comprehensive current information.

    Many states lack information - there appears to have been no statewide action taken but I can't guarantee it. There may also be local bans in place in some locations.

    Lack of state prohibition does not mean the substance is fully legal and may be prosecutable under a number of existing laws.

    I will miss them as a Floridian. But I can see a bit of Bondi's reasoning. The news this morning carried an awful story where a visibly drunk man leaving a liquor store hit a curb, went two-wheel sideways, "just like the clown riders at the monster truck shows," said witness Wee Willy Hillbilly, ran over a gaggle of nuns killing entire gaggle, he was then so shaken he dropped his hot coffee and bourbon from his hand to his lap. It was at this point, he jumped the median and hit a convoy of school buses heading to the Space Center tour.

    In all another 712 children were killed. Many were even revived and had to die a second time.


    But folks, theres a reason we tel y'all come to Florida on vacation and leave on probation. Aint nothing against you Texas Rangers state police with your pretty little garden hats on, but Florinda ranks second to NONE in LE at the highest levels. A very sharp Tallahassee detective found an invoice for plant food in the subjects car.....He was on a trip to BUY MEPHEDRONE!!!!! If I had black and white film and some old super 8 camera I'd scare all you kids right with an informative accurate documentary like "Methylone Madness"

    Appears the Washington law actually became effective on April 15, 2011. I can't find the actual document at the moment 04/15/11
    WAC 246-887-100 (Emergency Rule) Schedule I chemicals used in the manufacturing of synthetic cannabinoids and cathinone derivative products
    WSR 11-09-044

    From news reports they explicitly mention Mephedrone and MDPV, but it is unclear if others are banned as well.

    Looks like JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-200, CP-47,497, cannabicyclohexanol, mephedrone, MDPV, methylone, butylone, and flephedrone are covered by this.
