Drug and Narcotic Control: Control of drug and narcotic use by international agreement, or by institutional systems for handling prescribed drugs. This includes regulations concerned with the manufacturing, dispensing, approval (DRUG APPROVAL), and marketing of drugs.Narcotics: Agents that induce NARCOSIS. Narcotics include agents that cause somnolence or induced sleep (STUPOR); natural or synthetic derivatives of OPIUM or MORPHINE or any substance that has such effects. They are potent inducers of ANALGESIA and OPIOID-RELATED DISORDERS.Nalorphine: A narcotic antagonist with some agonist properties. It is an antagonist at mu opioid receptors and an agonist at kappa opioid receptors. Given alone it produces a broad spectrum of unpleasant effects and it is considered to be clinically obsolete.Levorphanol: A narcotic analgesic that may be habit-forming. It is nearly as effective orally as by injection.Meperidine: A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.Levallorphan: An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)Narcotic Antagonists: Agents inhibiting the effect of narcotics on the central nervous system.Pentazocine: The first mixed agonist-antagonist analgesic to be marketed.

Properties include induction of ANALGESIA or NARCOSIS.Morphine: The principal alkaloid in opium and the prototype opiate analgesic and narcotic. Morphine has widespread effects in the central nervous system and on smooth muscle.Opium: The air-dried exudate from the unripe seed capsule of the opium poppy, Papaver somniferum, or its variant, P. album. It contains a number of alkaloids, but only a few - MORPHINE; CODEINE; and PAPAVERINE - have clinical significance. Opium has been used as an analgesic, antitussive, antidiarrheal, and antispasmodic.Alphaprodine: An opioid analgesic chemically related to and with an action resembling that of MEPERIDINE, but more rapid in onset and of shorter duration. It has been used in obstetrics, as pre-operative medication, for minor surgical procedures, and for dental procedures. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1067)Cyclazocine: An analgesic with mixed narcotic agonist-antagonist properties.Morphinans: Compounds based on a partially saturated iminoethanophenanthrene, which can be described as ethylimino-bridged benzo-decahydronaphthalenes. They include some of the OPIOIDS found in PAPAVER that are used as ANALGESICS.Legislation, Drug: Laws concerned with manufacturing, dispensing, and marketing of drugs.Dextropropoxyphene: A narcotic analgesic structurally related to METHADONE. Only the dextro-isomer has an analgesic effect; the levo-isomer appears to exert an antitussive effect.Opioid-Related Disorders: Disorders related or resulting from abuse or mis-use of opioids.Fentanyl: A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)Methadone: A synthetic opioid that is used as the hydrochloride. It is an opioid analgesic that is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. It has actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1082-3)Oxymorphone: An opioid analgesic with actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE, apart from an absence of cough suppressant activity. It is used in the treatment of moderate to severe pain, including pain in obstetrics. It may also be used as an adjunct to anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1092)Analgesics: Compounds capable of relieving pain without the loss of CONSCIOUSNESS.Codeine: An opioid analgesic related to MORPHINE but with less potent analgesic properties and mild sedative effects. It also acts centrally to suppress cough.Heroin: A narcotic analgesic that may be habit-forming. It is a controlled substance (opium derivative) listed in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21 Parts 329.1, 1308.11 (1987). Sale is forbidden in the United States by Federal statute. (Merck Index, 11th ed)Pain, Postoperative: Pain during the period after surgery.Preanesthetic Medication: Drugs administered before an anesthetic to decrease a patient's anxiety and control the effects of that anesthetic.Hydrocodone: Narcotic analgesic related to CODEINE, but more potent and more addicting by weight. It is used also as cough suppressant.Spasm: An involuntary contraction of a muscle or group of muscles. Spasms may involve SKELETAL MUSCLE or SMOOTH MUSCLE.Inert Gas Narcosis: Progressive mental disturbances and unconsciousness due to breathing mixtures of oxygen and inert gases (argon, helium, xenon, krypton, and atmospheric nitrogen) at high pressure.Substance-Related Disorders: Disorders related to substance abuse.Alcoholics Anonymous: An organization of self-proclaimed alcoholics who meet frequently to reinforce their practice of abstinence.Oxycodone: A semisynthetic derivative of CODEINE.Mitragyna: A plant genus of the family RUBIACEAE.

It has the histamine-antagonist properties of the antihistamines together with CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM effects resembling those of chlorpromazine. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p604)Morphine Dependence: Strong dependence, both physiological and emotional, upon morphine.Hydromorphone: An opioid analgesic made from MORPHINE and used mainly as an analgesic. It has a shorter duration of action than morphine.Pain: An unpleasant sensation induced by noxious stimuli which are detected by NERVE ENDINGS of NOCICEPTIVE NEURONS.KetonesParamethasone: A glucocorticoid with the general properties of corticosteroids. It has been used by mouth in the treatment of all conditions in which corticosteroid therapy is indicated except adrenal-deficiency states for which its lack of sodium-retaining properties makes it less suitable than HYDROCORTISONE with supplementary FLUDROCORTISONE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p737)Bridged Compounds: Cyclic hydrocarbons that contain multiple rings and share one or more atoms.Analgesia: Methods of PAIN relief that may be used with or in place of ANALGESICS.Papaver: A genus of Eurasian herbaceous plants, the poppies (family PAPAVERACEAE of the dicotyledon class Magnoliopsida), that yield OPIUM from the latex of the unripe seed pods.Pain, Intractable: Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.Methadyl Acetate: A narcotic analgesic with a long onset and duration of action.Pharmacy: The practice of compounding and dispensing medicinal preparations.Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome: Fetal and neonatal addiction and withdrawal as a result of the mother's dependence on drugs during pregnancy. Withdrawal or abstinence symptoms develop shortly after birth. Symptoms exhibited are loud, high-pitched crying, sweating, yawning and gastrointestinal disturbances.Drug Tolerance: Progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, resulting from its continued administration. It should be differentiated from DRUG RESISTANCE wherein an organism, disease, or tissue fails to respond to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should also be differentiated from MAXIMUM TOLERATED DOSE and NO-OBSERVED-ADVERSE-EFFECT LEVEL.Anesthesia: A state characterized by loss of feeling or sensation. This depression of nerve function is usually the result of pharmacologic action and is induced to allow performance of surgery or other painful procedures.Alfentanil: A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of FENTANYL. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.Perphenazine: An antipsychotic phenothiazine derivative with actions and uses similar to those of CHLORPROMAZINE.

Recall of Tripedia vaccine. (3/374)

On January 27, 1999, the Food and Drug Administration initiated a voluntary recall of Tripedia diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP), lot number 0916490, manufactured by Pasteur Merieux Connaught USA. Routine post-release stability testing completed in January 1999 indicated that the potency of the diphtheria toxoid component of this lot was below specification. The potency of the tetanus and pertussis components of this lot was acceptable.  (+info)

Does over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapy improve smokers' life expectancy? (4/374)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the public health benefits of making nicotine replacement therapy available without prescription, in terms of number of quitters and life expectancy. DESIGN: A decision-analytic model was developed to compare the policy of over-the-counter (OTC) availability of nicotine replacement therapy with that of prescription ([symbol: see text]) availability for the adult smoking population in the United States. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Long-term (six-month) quit rates, life expectancy, and smoking attributable mortality (SAM) rates. RESULTS: OTC availability of nicotine replacement therapy would result in 91,151 additional successful quitters over a six-month period, and a cumulative total of approximately 1.7 million additional quitters over 25 years. All-cause SAM would decrease by 348 deaths per year and 2940 deaths per year at six months and five years, respectively. Relative to [symbol: see text] nicotine replacement therapy availability, OTC availability would result in an average gain in life expectancy across the entire adult smoking population of 0.196 years per smoker. In sensitivity analyses, the benefits of OTC availability were evident across a wide range of changes in baseline parameters. CONCLUSIONS: Compared with [symbol: see text] availability of nicotine replacement therapy, OTC availability would result in more successful quitters, fewer smoking-attributable deaths, and increased life expectancy for current smokers.  (+info)

Recent developments in maintenance prescribing and monitoring in the United Kingdom. (5/374)

After a brief historical review of British drug legislation and public and governmental attitudes, this paper describes the wide range of policies and practices that have appeared since the explosion of illicit drug abuse in the 1960s. The spectrum goes from a reluctance to prescribe at all to maintenance on injectable opiates. Comparisons are made with differing attitudes to the availability of abortion in public health services. Compared with 5 years ago, about three times more methadone is being prescribed. There is a steady increase in prescriptions for injectable methadone but heroin maintenance is still rare. The "British System" permits great flexibility in the choice of opiates for maintenance. Some amphetamine-prescribing programmes also exist. Hair analysis for drugs to monitor levels of both prescribed and unprescribed drugs is a welcome and promising alternative to undignified and often misleading urine tests.  (+info)

Regulatory decision strategy for entry of a novel biological therapeutic with a clinically unmonitorable toxicity into clinical trials: pre-IND meetings and a case example. (7/374)

The following material was derived from a synthesis of case histories taken from investigational new drug (IND) applications and drug sponsors' experiences, utilizing fictionalized data to avoid any resemblance to any proprietary information; any such resemblance is accidental. These examples are used as an instructional scenario to illustrate appropriate handling of a difficult toxicology issue. In this scenario, a drug caused a toxicity in animals that was detected only by histopathologic analysis; if it were to develop in patients, no conventional clinical methods could be identified to monitor for it. It is not unusual for a firm to cancel clinical development plans for a lead drug candidate that causes such a toxicity, especially if such a drug is intended for use as a chronic therapeutic in a population of patients with a chronic disease. This case synthesis was inspired by a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) agreement to allow such a product to proceed into clinical trials after substantive pre-IND discussions and agreement on well-considered toxicology program designs. The scientists most closely involved in the strategy development included the sponsor's toxicologist, veterinary toxicologic pathologist, and pharmacokineticist, as well as the FDA's reviewing pharmacologist. The basis of this decision was thorough toxicity characterization (1-month studies in 2 species); correlating toxicities with a particular cumulative area under the curve (AUC) in both species; identification of the most sensitive species (the species that showed the lower AUC correlating with toxicity); allometric assessment of clearance of the drug in 3 nonhuman species; construction of a model of human kinetics (based on extrapolation from animal kinetics); and finally, estimation of clinical safety factors (ratios of the human estimated cumulative AUC at the proposed clinical doses, over the animal cumulative AUC that correlated with the no adverse effect levels). Industry and FDA scientists negotiated a joint assessment of risk and benefit in patients, resulting in the FDA permitting such a compound to enter into clinical trials for a serious autoimmune disease. Such constructive, early communication starts with the pre-IND meeting, and the conduct and planning for this meeting can be very important in establishing smooth scientific and regulatory groundwork for the future of a drug under IND investigation.  (+info)

Safety assessment of biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals: ICH and beyond. (8/374)

Many scientific discussions, especially in the past 8 yr, have focused on definition of criteria for the optimal assessment of the preclinical toxicity of pharmaceuticals. With the current overlap of responsibility among centers within the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), uniformity of testing standards, when appropriate, would be desirable. These discussions have extended beyond the boundaries of the FDA and have culminated in the acceptance of formalized, internationally recognized guidances. The work of the International Committee on Harmonisation (ICH) and the initiatives developed by the FDA are important because they (a) represent a consensus scientific opinion, (b) promote consistency, (c) improve the quality of the studies performed, (d) assist the public sector in determining what may be generally acceptable to prepare product development plans, and (e) provide guidance for the sponsors in the design of preclinical toxicity studies. Disadvantages associated with such initiatives include (a) the establishment of a historical database that is difficult to relinquish, (b) the promotion of a check-the-box approach, i.e., a tendancy to perform only the minimum evaluation required by the guidelines, (c) the creation of a disincentive for industry to develop and validate new models, and (d) the creation of state-of-the-art guidances that may not allow for appropriate evaluation of novel therapies. The introduction of biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals for clinical use has often required the application of unique approaches to assessing their safety in preclinical studies. There is much diversity among these products, which include the gene and cellular therapies, monoclonal antibodies, human-derived recombinant regulatory proteins, blood products, and vaccines. For many of the biological therapies, there will be unique product issues that may require specific modifications to protocol design and may raise additional safety concerns (e.g., immunogenicity). Guidances concerning the design of preclinical studies for such therapies are generally based on the clinical indication. Risk versus benefit decisions are made with an understanding of the nature of the patient population, the severity of disease, and the availability of alternative therapies. Key components of protocol design for preclinical studies addressing the risks of these agents include (a) a safe starting dose in humans, (b) identification of potential target organs, (c) identification of clinical parameters that should be monitored in humans, and (d) identification of at-risk populations. One of the distinct aspects of the safety evaluation of biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals is the use of relevant and often nontraditional species and the use of animal models of disease in preclinical safety evaluation. Extensive contributions were made by the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research to the ICH document on the safety of biotherapeutics, which is intended to provide worldwide guidance for a framework approach to the design and review of preclinical programs. Rational, scientifically sound study design and early identification of the potential safety concerns that may be anticipated in the clinical trial can result in preclinical data that facilitate use of these novel therapies for use in humans without duplication of effort or the unnecessary use of animals.  (+info)

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is proposing to amend its regulations to implement a new single-sheet format for order forms (DEA Form 222) which are issued by DEA to DEA registrants to allow them to order schedule I and/or II controlled substances. DEA published a notice of proposed rulemaking about this new format in November 2007 but did not finalize it. Due to the passage of time and procedural considerations, DEA is reissuing another notice of proposed rulemaking. This proposal supersedes the November 2007 proposal. This proposed rule calls for allowing the continued use of the existing triplicate DEA Form 222 until a sunset date of two years after the final rule becomes effective, which would be included in the final rule. DEA also proposes minor procedural changes, including among other things, to clarify the procedure involving who can issue the power of attorney that is required for others to sign DEA Form 222 ...

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) today commended House and Senate negotiators for agreeing on legislation to control 26 synthetic drugs under the Controlled Substances Act. These drugs include those commonly found in products marketed as "K2" and "Spice.". The addition of these chemicals to Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act will be included as part of S. 3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act. Schedule I substances are those with a high potential for abuse; have no medical use in treatment in the United States; and lack an accepted safety for use of the drug.. In addition to scheduling the 26 drugs, the new law would double the length of time a substance may be temporarily placed in schedule I (from 18 to 36 months). In addition to explicitly naming 26 substances, the legislation creates a new definition for "cannabamimetic agents," creating criteria by which similar chemical compounds are controlled. ...

A violation of this section is a Class 6 felony. However, the distribution of a substance listed in Schedule IV to a minor is a Class 4 felony.
A federal appeals court today ruled the federal Drug Enforcement Administration does not have to reconsider moving marijuana to a less-strict list of controlled substances - a significant defeat for those advocating for the drugs medical use.. Marijuana is currently listed on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act - the most restrictive category for controlled substances, encompassing drugs defined as having a high potential for abuse, no currently accepted medical use, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision. Other drugs on that list include heroin and LSD, while methamphetamine is on the less-restrictive Schedule II.. The Coalition for Rescheduling Marijuana filed a rescheduling petition in 2002; that petition was unanswered until 2011, when the Drug Enforcement Administration denied it after advocates sued for unreasonable delay. This hearing is on the appeal of that denial.. Advocates claim the ban on marijuana is rooted in politics, not science, and that the ...
The Justice Departments Drug Enforcement Administration has issued a final order establishing the initial 2016 aggregate production quotas for controlled substances in schedules I and II of the Controlled Substances Act as well as an assessment of annual needs for the List I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine and phenylpropanolamine. These amounts represent those quantities of the covered substances to be manufactured in the U.S. to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, research and industrial needs of the U.S., lawful export requirements, and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. These quotas include imports of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine and phenylpropanolamine but do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes.. ...
In a signed letter issued on Wednesday, 18 members of Congress have called on President Barack Obama to reclassify marijuana, a drug currently listed in the same category as heroin and LSD.. Authored by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), the letter comes after President Obamas comments to the New Yorker in January, in which he stated his belief that marijuana is not any more dangerous than drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes.. Under the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, the Drug Enforcement Administration classifies marijuana as a "Schedule I" substance. This is the harshest classification available for illegal substances, placing cannabis in a stricter category than drugs like cocaine. Schedule I substances are believed to have "no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.". "You said that you dont believe marijuana is any more dangerous than alcohol: a fully legalized substance, and believe it to be less dangerous in terms of its impact on the individual consumer," the ...
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has announced the reclassification of hydrocodone combination products from Schedule III to Schedule II under federal law. Schedule II drugs are substances known to be dangerous, prone to abuse, or could lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.. Combination hydrocodone painkiller products were previously regulated as Schedule III products under the law. Schedule III is the DEA category for substances that have accepted medical use, moderate potential for abuse, and the potential for dependency, according to the DEA definition. As a Schedule II substance, hydrocodone combination products will be subject to more stringent prescribing controls, such as bans on refills, Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) reports.. Non-combination hydrocodone drugs are already Schedule II drugs. The new policy will affect some of the countrys most-prescribed painkillers, including Vicodin, RAPS reports. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) figures ...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recommended reclassifying hydrocodone-containing painkillers like Vicodin from Schedule III drugs to the more restrictive Schedule II, a move that would bring such medications in line with opioid painkillers such as oxycodone and morphine.. In January, an expert panel advising the FDA voted 19 to 10 in favor of the more stringent prescribing requirements. Proponents of the reclassification have noted hydrocodones abuse potential (such products are currently the most-abused prescription medicine behind oxycodone), while critics have argued that the move would hinder legitimate pain patients from obtaining treatment.. The reclassification must be approved by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Drug Enforcement Administration, which will make a final scheduling decision.. Separately in September, the FDA announced new safety labeling changes for extended-release and long-acting opioid analgesics such as OxyContin. The updated labels must ...
It started with a coalition of disgruntled Americans, then a handful of governors took up the cause last year, and now - for the first time in nearly 20 years - a federal court will hear oral arguments in a lawsuit challenging the classification of cannabis as a dangerous drug without medical benefits.. In the case, Americans for Safe Access v. Drug Enforcement Administration, the court will be presented with scientific evidence regarding the medicinal effects of marijuana, and is expected to rule on whether or not the Drug Enforcement Administration acted appropriately in denying a petition to reclassify cannabis, filed by a collection of public interest organizations back in 2002.. "Medical marijuana patients are finally getting their day in court," Joe Elford, chief counsel with ASA, said in a recent statement. "This is a rare opportunity for patients to confront politically motivated decision-making with scientific evidence of marijuanas medical efficacy." Under federal law, a schedule I ...
FDA took two important steps last week to clarify the regulatory landscape for cannabis products, including CBD products. First, FDA issued a draft guidance on Quality Considerations for Clinical Research Involving Cannabis and Cannabis Derived Compounds. This guidance builds off of earlier guidance FDA has issued about the quality and regulatory considerations that govern the development and FDA approval of cannabis and/or cannabinoid drug products. See e.g., here and here. The draft guidance iterates a federal standard for calculating delta-9 THC content in cannabis finished products, which addresses a significant gap in federal policy regarding those products. While the testing standard is neither final nor binding on FDA or DEA, when finalized it would iterate what FDA considers to be a scientifically valid method for making the determination of whether a cannabis product is a Schedule I controlled substance. Therefore, it may be useful in many contexts, including federal and state cannabis ...

The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (French: Loi réglementant certaines drogues et autres substances) is Canadas federal drug control statute. Passed in 1996 under Prime Minister Jean Chrétiens government, it repeals the Narcotic Control Act and Parts III and IV of the Food and Drug Act and establishes eight Schedules of controlled substances and two Classes of precursors. It provides that "The Governor in Council may, by order, amend any of Schedules I to VIII by adding to them or deleting from them any item or portion of an item, where the Governor in Council deems the amendment to be necessary in the public interest."

A deputy is appointed to manage the financial affairs of a person who lacks mental capacity. In many cases, the incapacitated person needs support and care and this care is often provided by family members.. Family carers may struggle financially because they are no longer able to go out to work. If they ask the deputy for financial assistance, the deputy must decide if it is appropriate to pay the family members for the care they provide.. If the deputy is not a professional person, the deputy will have to make an application to the Court of Protection for approval of any payments to family members for their care. This is because a deputy, like a trustee, cannot personally benefit from their role as deputy. They cannot decide to pay money from the deputyship funds to themselves or people close to them such as their spouse or children.. If the deputy is a professional, they can decide to make payments to family members for care without needing court approval. The deputy must show that they have ...

A medical practitioner contacted the Network with a question regarding whether hemp oil was legal in Minnesota and if he could have it available in his clinic for his patients.. The legality of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has caused significant controversy. In December 2016 the federal Drug Enforcement Administration promulgated a final rule clarifying that CBD oil is a marijuana derivative, and as such is listed as a Schedule I substance under the Federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.. In early 2017, the agency issued a clarification to the new rule specifically addressing the legal status of CBD oil. Essentially, the agency states that "cannabinoids are not found in the parts of the cannabis plant that are excluded from the CSA definition of marijuana," and therefore they are listed on Schedule I. It should be noted that cannabis industry representatives have ...
Posted on 05/21/2012 7:31:52 AM PDT by Altariel. At 5:30 a.m. on May 10, armed men broke into the bedroom of Kirk Kyle Farrar s 12 year-old daughter and shook her awake. The men led her downstairs at gunpoint and forced her to lie on the floor next to her mother and father, with her hands behind her head. Another armed man took Farrar s two-year-old son from his crib, and would not let his parents hold him. My son screamed for his mother for what seemed like an eternity, Farrar wrote in an email to friends, obtained by Reason. I will never forget the hopeless feeling of not being able to comfort my son or daughter. The armed men who broke into Farrar s home were officers with the Meridian, Idaho, Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration. They were executing a federal warrant for Farrar s arrest for the crime of selling bongs. Farrar s wasn t the only family traumatized that morning. Agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Idaho National ...
By Anushree Madappa On 02/27/18. On Monday, a federal judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York dismissed a request to reclassify marijuana - currently a Schedule I drug, leaving the plaintiffs in a limbo after many states have legalized marijuana for medical and recreational purposes.. The plaintiffs - Marvin Washington, Dean Bartell, Alexis Bartell, Jose Belen, Sebastien Cotte, Jagger Cotte, along with the Cannabis Cultural Association Inc. - filed the petition challenging classification of marijuana as a Schedule I drug, hoping that its reclassification would pay way for legalization of cannabis across the nation. They sued Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in the federal court.. They petitioners claimed that the "current scheduling of marijuana violates due process because it lacks a rational basis.". For decades, Marijuana has been under the Schedule I category of the Controlled Substances ...
Earlier today, the U.S. Department of Justices Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced that marijuana (Cannabis) will continue to remain a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This forthcoming announcement will be published on Friday in the Federal Register. In response to the petition to change the schedule of marijuana, the DEA determined that the use of marijuana for any reason - recreational or medical - is illegal under federal law.. The DEAs announcement to keep marijuana as a Schedule I drug means that any states that do allow marijuana to be used for medical reasons or recreational purposes continue to go against federal law.. Eight states will vote to legalize weed for recreational or medical purposes in the upcoming November election: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri and Nevada, according to CNN. As both the recreational and medical use of marijuana has grown in popularity, so has support for its legalization ...
Start Preamble On January 21, 2010, I, the Deputy Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, issued an Order to Show Cause and Immediate Suspension of Registration to Beverly P. Edwards, M.D. (Respondent), of Indianapolis, Indiana. The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Respondents DEA Certificate of Registration, BE8619667, and the denial of any pending applications to renew or modify her registration, on the ground that Respondents "continued registration is inconsistent with the public interest, as that term is defined in 21 U.S.C. 823(f)." Show Cause Order at 1 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(4)).. The Show Cause Order specifically alleged that Respondent was prescribing controlled substances over the Internet based on "online questionnaires and/or webcam consultations and without first conducting an in person physical examination" and that she lacked a "legitimate medical purpose" and acted "outside the usual course of professional practice" in issuing the prescriptions in ...
Formal title: Docket Number [DEA-287N] Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration: Issuance of Multiple Prescriptions for Schedule II Controlled
Introduction On October 27, 1970, the Congress passed the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act (P.L. 91-513, 21 U.S.C. § 801 et seq.). According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Title II of this Act, the Controlled Substances Act, is a "consolidation of numerous laws regulating the manufacture and distribution of narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, anabolic steroids, and chemicals used in the illicit production of controlled substances" and is "the legal foundation of the governments fight against drugs and other substances."22 The Act also regulates all legal and illegal substances that are recognized as having potential for abuse or addiction. The DEA is charged with enforcing the Controlled Substances Act, including the regulation of controlled pharmaceuticals and regulated chemicals. Specifically, the DEAs diversion control program oversees and regulates the legal manufacture and distribution of controlled pharmaceuticals, which include narcotics ...

Several city officials - including Mayor Edna Jackson, council members Carol Bell and Tony Thomas, City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney and Metro Police Chief Willie Lovett - kicked this idea around last week during a meeting to discuss crime in the citys southside. This isnt a new issue. City officials have expressed frustration about drug enforcement in the past. One proposal that has gone nowhere is moving the county-run Counter Narcotics Team under the metro police chiefs command. County officials and mayors of the smaller municipalities have objected. They believe the CNT would be overly focused on Savannah and that drug enforcement in their communities would suffer.. Forming a city-funded and supervised drug squad could be a way of achieving the best of both worlds - increased drug enforcement in the city, while not rocking the political boat.. But city officials should approach this arrangement with several preconditions:. • A city-run operation must not be a costly duplication of what ...
On May 13, 1986, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) issued a Final Rule and Statement of Policy authorizing the "rescheduling of synthetic dronabinol in sesame oil and encapsulated in soft gelatin capsules from Schedule I to Schedule II" (DEA 51 FR 17476-78). This permitted medical use of Marinol, albeit with the severe restrictions associated with Schedule II status.[13] For instance, refills of Marinol prescriptions were not permitted. At its 10th meeting, on April 29, 1991, the Commission on Narcotic Drugs, in accordance with article 2, paragraphs 5 and 6, of the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, decided that Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol (also referred to as Δ⁹-THC) and its stereochemical variants should be transferred from Schedule I to Schedule II of that Convention. This released Marinol from the restrictions imposed by Article 7 of the Convention (See also United Nations Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances).[citation needed]. An ...

New rules proposed by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will allow physicians to write prescriptions for 90-day supplies of potent painkillers and other Schedule II controlled substances, including OxyContin (oxycodone) and Ritalin (methylphenidate). DEA officials said that the proposed rule change "will make it easier for patients with chronic pain or other chronic conditions to avoid multiple trips to a physician." Under the plan, physicians must first determine that a patient has a legitimate medical need for the prescribed substance before prescribing a 90-day supply of drugs. Along with the regulatory proposal, the agency released a new policy statement requested by pharmacists and physicians to clarify the DEAs position on "Dispensing Controlled Substances for the Treatment of Pain." The new policy statement outlines the DEAs requirement that controlled substances be prescribed only for a legitimate medical purpose. It also elaborates on the agencys policy of taking legal ...
More News. Commercial smallsat systems provide new opportunities and challenges for the weather community. At a panel session at the AMS meeting this week, companies developing constellations of smallsats to collect GPS radio occultation data argued their systems could provide much more data per dollar than conventional satellite systems. However, those systems also face challenges, including how to incorporate their data into weather models as well as how governments can buy data while also maintaining their mandate to freely share weather data.

In a statement Thursday, FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research director Janet Woodcock said the agency would formally recommend to the Department of Health and Human Services that products containing 15 mg or less of the drug hydrocodones be reclassified as Schedule II controlled substances, from the current Schedule III. The higher scheduling would impose tougher regulations on hydrocodone, which is an active ingredient in products like AbbVies Vicodin, among other products. The Drug Enforcement Administration, which regulates controlled substances, proposed the change in 2009, and the FDA will submit its recommendation in December.. The change is being recommended in light of Vicodin being a common target for abuse and misuse, which itself feeds the problem of pharmacy robberies and can have potentially fatal consequences for people taking the drug improperly or recreationally.. Abuse and misuse of opioids has become a growing problem across the country in recent years. According to ...
COLUMBUS-State Senator Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) has introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 13 to urge Congress and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to reclassify marijuana, or cannabis, to a less restricted category. Reclassification would increase research into marijuanas effects and ease the burden on legal medical marijuana businesses. "Marijuanas Schedule I status is both inaccurate and damaging to the many Americans who benefit from medical cannabis," said Senator Yuko. "The families of sick children who have used this product know how important it is. But researchers are afraid to study cannabis, and legal businesses are forced to remain cash-only, because the government still views it as dangerous.". Marijuana - which is not known to have caused any overdose deaths - is currently a Schedule I drug alongside deadly substances such as heroin. Other highly addictive drugs like oxycodone and methamphetamine are listed as Schedule II, which is a lower ...
About 12 years ago, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) took under consideration a public petition to reclassify hydrocodone combination products (Vicodin, Lortab, and Norco, for example) from schedule III to schedule II drugs -- attempting to put them in a more tightly regulated category thats already home to almost all other opioid painkillers, including oxycodone (OxyContin) and morphine.
Five chemicals used to make fake weed, referred to as K2 and spice, just got an emergency designation by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), making possession and sale of the substances or products containing them illegal in the United States. The chemicals - called JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-200, CP-47,497 and cannabicyclohexanol - are considered Schedule 1 under the Controlled Substances Act, a class that also includes heroin and the substances in ecstasy.. The drug is already outlawed in many European countries, at least 18 U.S. states and all branches of the U.S. military, according to the American Psychiatric Association. "This emergency action was necessary to prevent an imminent threat to public health and safety," according to a DEA statement. The temporary scheduling will remain in place for at least a year while the DEA and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services study whether the chemicals should be permanently controlled.. ...
McKesson Corporation (McKesson), one of the nations largest distributors of pharmaceutical drugs, agreed to pay a record $150 million civil penalty for alleged violations of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), the Justice Department announced today. The nationwide settlement requires McKesson to suspend sales of controlled substances from distribution centers in Colorado, Ohio, Michigan and Florida for multiple years. The staged suspensions are among the most severe sanctions ever agreed to by a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) registered distributor. The settlement also imposes new and enhanced compliance obligations on McKessons distribution system. In 2008, McKesson agreed to a $13.25 million civil penalty and administrative agreement for similar violations. In this case, the government alleged again that McKesson failed to design and implement an effective system to detect and report "suspicious orders" for controlled substances distributed to its independent and small chain pharmacy ...

CHAPEL HILL, NC - The use of the synthetic stimulants collectively known as "bath salts" have gained popularity among recreational drug users over the last five years, largely because they were readily available and unrestricted via the Internet and at convenience stores, and were virtually unregulated. Recent studies point to compulsive drug taking among bath salts users, and several deaths have been blamed on the bath salt mephedrone (4-methylmethcathinone or "meow-meow"). This has led several countries to ban the production, possession, and sale of mephedrone and other cathinone derivative drugs. In October 2011, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration placed mephedrone on Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act for one year, pending further study. "Basically, the DEA was saying we dont know enough about these drugs to know how potentially dangerous they could be, so were going to make them maximally restricted, gather more data, and then come to a more reasoned decision as to how we ...
