In 1999, the DEA opened the Drug Enforcement Administration Museum in Arlington, Virginia. In February 2003, the DEA started a Digital Evidence Laboratory in its Office of Forensic Sciences.[2] ...

Federal Register reports:. With the issuance of this final rule, the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration reschedules hydrocodone combination products from schedule III to schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act. This scheduling action is pursuant to the Controlled Substances Act which requires that such actions be made on the record after opportunity for a hearing through formal rulemaking. This action imposes the regulatory controls and administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions applicable to schedule II controlled substances on persons who handle (manufacture, distribute, dispense, import, export, engage in research, conduct instructional activities with, conduct chemical analysis with, or possess) or propose to handle hydrocodone combination products..

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. ...

Except as authorized by this chapter or chapter 34-20B, no person may manufacture, distribute, or dispense a controlled drug or substance listed in Schedule IV; possess with intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense a substance listed in Schedule IV; create or distribute a counterfeit substance listed in Schedule IV; or possess with intent to distribute a counterfeit substance listed in Schedule IV. 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. The Act serves as the implementing legislation for the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, and the United Nations Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances. The list below reflects the list of drugs scheduled in Canadas Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Opium Poppy (Papaver ...
The federal Drug Enforcement Administration recently put out a warning about prescription pills made in Mexico which contain fentanyl. A recent bust occurred in Cleveland where the pills turned up. Though local drug task force officials say they havent seen them yet in large quantities, they expect they will soon.. The little blue pills look like the real prescription drug, and thats what makes them so potentially deadly.. The blue pills, which are being illegally sold as the painkiller oxycodone, might actually contain traces of fentanyl - a dangerous synthetic opioid..

Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, a Republican turned Independent, on Wednesday signed into law a bill to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana.. The Providence Journal reported that the law makes possessing an ounce or less of marijuana a civil violation with a $150 fine. However, three violations within 18 months would be a misdemeanor with larger fines and possibly prison. Half of the money collected by the fines will be put towards drug awareness and treatment programs for youths.. Last year, Chafee asked the federal Drug Enforcement Administration to reclassify marijuana as a Schedule II drug. Sixteen states, including Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of medical marijuana. However, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration still classifies marijuana as a schedule I drug: the most restrictive classification reserved for dangerous drugs with no real medical value.. ...
The Drug Enforcement Administration recently announced a temporary ban on two major chemicals in kratom - mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Kratom is an herbal supplement which is claimed to help treat various health issues, ranging from depression to chronic pain to an addicts physical and psychological dependence on opioids. On September 30, these two kratom chemicals will be classified as Schedule I substances.. The DEA filed to place the plant and its two main components on Schedule I on Wednesday. It will now be listed alongside marijuana, ecstasy and LSD on Schedule I. The DEA ban on these two primary chemicals can be applied both to kratom, the plant, and any other synthetic alternatives to the plant.. Kratom originates in Southeast Asia and is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family. The species is indigenous to Thailand and has been used in traditional medicine, but it has no approved medical applications and few studies have been done into its health effects. It is ...
Ive been a fan of the nutritional supplement DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol or dimethylethanolamine) for some time. Some women swear by it for reducing wrinkles and age spots, especially when applied in cream form. However, I believe this nutrient has a much wider and more important use than skin care. That use is boosting brain function in people experiencing problems with sleep, focus, and attention.. When I started taking DMAE years ago, I noticed about an hour reduction in the number of hours of sleep I needed each day to feel rested. I also noticed improved ability to concentrate. As with any supplement, your results may vary due to many factors including diet, weight, biochemistry, genetics, dosages, and perhaps random chance. That said, if youve got concerns about excessive sleepiness, trouble focusing, and problems maintaining attention, its my opinion that DMAE is worth a look as it is an inexpensive dietary supplement with a long track record.. ...
The federal government prohibits the manufacture, distribution, dispensation and possession of controlled substances unless specifically permitted by statute. The government categorizes controlled substances according to Schedules I through V. Schedule I drugs have a high potential for abuse, with no accepted medical use. Schedule I drugs include, but are not limited to, heroin, marijuana, hashish, LSD and other hallucinogens. Schedule II drugs have a high potential for abuse, but some medical use, and include opium, morphine, codeine, barbiturates, cocaine and its derivatives, amphetamines, phencyclidine (PCP) and other narcotics. Schedule III, Schedule IV and Schedule V drugs have some potential for abuse, but less than Schedule I and II drugs, with Schedule III drugs having the most potential for abuse and Schedule V the least. Schedule III, IV and V drugs include chloral hydrate (IV), certain barbiturates (III and IV), benzodiazines (IV), glutethimide (III), other depressants and narcotics ...
September 15, 2014. On October 6, new Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) requirements will be in place for all hydrocodone-containing products (HCPs). See DEAs Final Rule for more details. Specifically, all HCPs will be Schedule II drugs, whereas at the present time, some are Schedule II, while others are Schedule III drugs. Hydrocodone is used at times in canine medicine for its ability to help control coughing in dogs and for pain control, so the scheduling change could be particularly of interest to small animal veterinarians..

Due to the relative ease of synthetic modification of oripavine to produce other narcotics (by either direct or indirect routes via thebaine), the World Health Organizations Expert Committee on Drug Dependence recommended in 2003 that oripavine be controlled under Schedule I of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.[3] On March 14 2007, the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs formally decided to accept these recommendations, and placed oripavine in the Schedule I.[4] Until recently, oripavine was a Schedule II drug in the United States by default as a thebaine derivative, although it was not explicitly listed. However, as a member state under the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, the US was obligated to specifically control the substance under the Controlled Substances Act following its international control by the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs. On September 24 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration formally added oripavine to Schedule II.[5] ...

Licensed dentists in Illinois may write prescriptions only in connection with dental-related ailments or conditions. To write a prescription for any other non-dental condition is a violation of the Illinois Dental Practice Act and may make the dentist liable for license sanction.. By virtue of receiving the general dental license, a dentist may write prescriptions for non-controlled substances. However, if a dentist wishes to have the authority to prescribe for controlled substances as defined by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), then he/she must obtain two licenses from both the State of Illinois and the DEA.. Controlled drugs are listed by schedule, and any dentist who chooses to prescribe or dispense Schedule II through V drugs is subject to the provisions of the Illinois Controlled Substance Act as well as federal regulations. Illinois law requires that a dentist possess an Illinois controlled substance license for each place of business. Federal DEA registrations (DEA Number) ...

But it is hard to imagine why she or husband John would want to excavate any unhappy memories of her Percocet period. Her battle with addiction included a series of major felony offenses in the early 90s, which included falsifying prescriptions, stealing drugs from a medical charity she founded and underwrote with her family fortune, and inducing doctors and other employees of that charity to help her obtain Percocet and other Schedule III narcotics illegally. The Drug Enforcement Administration opened an investigation of her after a former employee, whose name she had used to obtain drugs, reported her criminal misuse of her charity. At the time, seasoned defense attorneys in Arizona believed that she could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted on half a dozen counts (and that if her name had been José Lopez, she surely would have).. But Cindy McCain avoided prosecution by federal authorities. Instead, like so many other wealthy and high-profile drug offenders - and unlike so many of ...

Congress passed the Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act (DASCA) of 2014 (S. 2012) last night, clearing the bill to be signed into law by President Obama. Obama is expected to sign the bill that provides new authority to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to place designer anabolic steroids on the Controlled Substance Schedules more rapidly. The bill also gives DEA new enforcement tools to prosecute disreputable companies that develop and market anabolic steroids mislabeled as dietary supplements. AHPA has been advocating lawmakers to pass this legislation to help protect consumers from potentially dangerous anabolic steroids falsely marketed as dietary supplements. AHPA thanks Congress for passing this important bill, said Michael McGuffin, president of the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA). Just a handful of bad actors selling illegal products can tarnish the regulated supplement industry. When President Obama signs this legislation into law, it will help protect consumers ...

Houston, Texas 77079-2990. Dear Mr. Grumbles:. This is in response to your letter of March 2, requesting a clarification on the listing of Hydrogen Chloride in Appendix A of the Process Safety Standard which was promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on February 24, 1992 (57FR 6356).. Specifically, you asked why Hydrogen Chloride and Hydrochloric Acid, anhydrous were both listed in Appendix A and both had the same CAS number (CAS #7647-01-0).. The Appendix A list is referring to Hydrogen Chloride gas and its liquid form. If hydrogen chloride gas is liquefied, it is sometimes referred to as Hydrogen Chloride, Anhydrous or Hydrochloric acid, anhydrous. However, it is still the same substance. Consequently, the Agency listed the substance both ways, but with the same CAS number, to indicate that they are both the same substance.. I hope this information will be of assistance to you and have clarified your question.. Sincerely,. Thomas H. ...

Pentobarbital is a barbiturate derivative that was first synthesized in 1930 and is considered a Schedule II controlled substance by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). It has been used clinically in humans as a short-acting and potent sedative-hypnotic agent for insomnia, pre-anesthesia, and as an anticonvulsant. It has other uses in treating Reyes syndrome and traumatic brain injury as well in veterinary anesthesia. Pentobarbital is also one of the drugs that has been used in human and animal euthanasia. In November 2013, a Missouri death row inmate died from a dose of the drug during the lethal injection/capital punishment process. Its pharmacological mechanism of action is via GABA receptor potentiation, AMPA and kainate receptor inhibition. The drug also increases the duration or time that chloride ion channels are open. The molecular formula is C11H18N2O3 and molecular weight is 226.2 g/mol. Different forms of the drug exist on the market such as capsules, tablets, ...
In June 1994, the law enforcement community was starkly reminded of the violence that surrounds methamphetamine trafficking and the changing nature of the methamphetamine trade that is spreading across the United States. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Richard Fass, acting in an undercover capacity, was attempting to make a purchase of methamphetamine in a Glendale, Arizona, strip-mall when he was ambushed, shot, and killed by four methamphetamine traffickers whose sole intent was to rob him. This incident ended in violence and tragedy, as do so many of the cases involving methamphetamine. Law enforcement officers are not the only ones to suffer from the violence and danger associated with methamphetamine innocent victims all too often are brought into the fray. Over the past year, two separate methamphetamine-related tragedies have captured the publics attention. First, during the summer in New Mexico, a father, while high on methamphetamine, beheaded his 14-year-old son. ...

The Oregon indictment is an outgrowth of an investigation which began when, in September 2011, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents in Baltimore received information regarding an online illegal drug marketplace known as Silk Road. Subsequently, the Baltimore Silk Road Task Force, led by HSI, and including U.S. Secret Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), was created. The ensuing investigation revealed the Silk Road website had been in operation since approximately March 2011 and had more than 957,079 registered users who ...

Five of the 10 defendants will be presented and arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Judge ...
In an astonishingly short timeframe, the AVMA, with assistance from the CVMA, was able to change federal DEA law that had stood for nearly 40 years. The Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act has changed the law to now allow veterinarians to carry controlled substances in the field.. In the spring of 2012, the CVMA received dozens of phone calls and emails from northern California veterinarians requesting assistance in representing them to the DEA. Large animal ambulatory and small animal mobile practitioners were being contacted by the Sacramento Region Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) field office and informed that it was unlawful for them to carry controlled substances in their vehicles. The CVMA immediately contacted the DEA field office to voice concern about the calls and requested that veterinary practitioners be exempted from this regulation on the grounds that the nature of veterinary practice requires that controlled substances be used in the field. While the local DEA office ...
This report illustrates the dangers associated with illicit meth laboratories. Substances used in these laboratories are corrosive, explosive, flammable, and toxic and can cause fires, explosions, and other uncontrolled reactions (4,5). An estimated 20%--30% of known meth laboratories are discovered because of fires and explosions (6). These laboratories are located in various environments, including private residences, motel rooms, rental storage facilities, campgrounds, and motor vehicles (4,7). Historical data from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) demonstrate a substantial increase in the numbers of meth laboratories seized by law enforcement officials, from 263 in 1994 to 1,815 in 2000, representing a 590% increase (8). Relative ease of production, short production time, and profit potential are possible reasons contributing to the likely increase in the numbers of laboratories discovered. Similar to DEA data, the overall numbers of meth events in the HSEES system appear to be ...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is warning of a new problem presented by the nation's opioid epidemic: the threat of law enforcement officers accidentally overdosing....
NEW YORK (AP) - The Drug Enforcement Administration is warning that Mexican drug cartels are manufacturing large quantities of counterfeit prescription pills containing the deadly opioid fentanyl.The DEA said Monday the pills have been showing up on Long Island and New York City, as well as other parts of the country.
NEWARK, N.J. - Eleven people were charged today for their roles as members and associates of a drug trafficking organization involved in the distribution of narcotics, including heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine base (crack) in the Stephen Crane Village Housing Complex in Newark, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.. One defendant is also charged with the murder of a conspirator in an apartment in Crane Village.. The charges and arrests resulted from an investigation led by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the U.S. Attorneys Office and in conjunction with numerous local law enforcement partners and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.. The criminal complaint against these defendants details a brazen drug dealing operation going on right out in the open that used violence to accomplish its goals, Carpenito said. Thanks to the combined work of our federal, state, and local partners, we have been able to address a substantial threat to the ...
Due to their location, the Corn Islands are used as stop-over by drug traffickers who travel over water from Columbia and head to Mexico and the United States. The Nicaraguan coastguard as well as the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) operates at the islands and along the coast. On occasion, chased drug traffickers dump their cargo into sea, which later might end up at the Corn Islands. Furthermore, there have been problems concerning armed robberies on both Big and Little Corn Island. Recently (September 2005), the police have permanently installed three policemen on Little Corn Island, in cooperation with the ministry of tourism (INTUR) and hotel owners. This is a promising measure as the lack of law enforcement made many of the robberies possible. The U.S. Embassy has pledged to donate $200,000 to build a police station on Big Corn Island. These recent measures give hope that the problems at the Corn Islands are finally taken seriously and hopefully results will soon be seen. At this ...
The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Joseph Tezanos (WPC-1118) offloaded 2,513 pounds (1,140 kilos) of cocaine and transferred custody of three suspected smugglers to Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agents in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
But money alone wont fix the problem-we also need legislative and policy changes. Instead of criminalizing the drug based solely on its chemical composition, legality should be defined by toxicity, the accreditation of manufacturing labs, and distribution method. Our federal agencies need to target online distributors. Medical examiners and coroners need to document medications found at overdose death scenes, check those lists against state databases, and report cases of prescription drug diversion. We also need to alert prescribing physicians in these cases so they can re-evaluate their prescription guidelines. Coroners must certify overdose deaths properly-listing all the medications by name instead of just writing mixed drug intoxication on the death certificate, for instance. Medical examiners should work with the Drug Enforcement Administration to apply comprehensive testing techniques to pills collected from death scenes, looking for emerging contaminants and designer drugs. This is ...
MIAMI - A South Florida doctor has been arrested on federal drug charges.. Dr. Jacob McClean, 36, appeared in federal court Monday in Miami.. The Pembroke Pines psychiatrist was arrested Friday by Drug Enforcement Administration agents.. Federal authorities said McClean was illegally dispensing and using methamphetamine.. Doctors are not supposed to prescribe methamphetamine under any circumstances (to) patients, DEA spokeswoman Anne-Judith Lambert told Local 10 News. Its not done under a normal course of action. This doctor was doing that and he shouldnt have been doing it.. Lambert said McClean was also writing prescriptions for medications that are not medically necessary and are also illegal.. She said undercover agents purchased very large qualities of methamphetamine from McClean.. A receptionist at McCleans Flamingo Road office said he was never there and just served his clients virtually.. McClean, who surrendered his license to write prescriptions in March, is being held on a ...

Those barriers have had more than just a chilling effect.. When the federal Drug Enforcement Administration announced last year that even marijuana extracts with CBD and little or no THC - marijuanas intoxicating component - are an illegal Schedule 1 drug, the University of Pennsylvania halted its clinical trials. Colorado State University is pushing ahead.. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has warned companies that sell marijuana products online and via pet shops and animal hospitals that theyre violating laws by offering unapproved new animal drugs. The FDA threatened legal action.. But, seeing potential benefits of CBDs, the American Veterinary Medical Associations policy-making body said last summer it wants the DEA to declassify marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug to facilitate research opportunities for veterinary and human medical uses. It asked the board of the national veterinarians organization to investigate working with other stakeholders toward that goal. The board is ...
Deputies were conducting a seat belt checkpoint along the northbound lane of LA Highway 316 near Meadowland Drive when they noticed a van wherein a small child was not properly restrained. Deputies stopped the vehicle and immediately detected a strong odor of suspected marijuana inside the vehicle. Upon questioning the occupants of the vehicle, the passenger, Tonia Parfait, admitted to having just smoked a marijuana cigar and handed it to the deputies. The rear passenger, Vahn Butler, appeared to be extremely nervous. He denied having anything illegal, but upon exiting the vehicle, he placed a large amount of money on the rear seat, which was later determined to be $886. Upon searching the vehicle, deputies discovered an insulated lunch box containing several glass jars, and each jar contained small individual bags of high-grade marijuana. They also discovered 8 Xanax pills, a container of liquid Promethazine with Codeine, a loaded handgun, and various drug paraphernalia. Butler admitted to ...

The Drug Enforcement Administrations refusal to reschedule cannabis has nothing to do with health, for if it cared about safety, it would need look no further than itself. Youre more likely to be shot by a DEA agent than you are to die from an overdose of pot because the latter has never happened. The burden of proof has unjustly fallen on legalization advocates; initially convicted by racism and xenophobia, cannabis has been proclaimed guilty until proved innocent. The Food and Drug Administration and the DEA maintain that the medical benefits of cannabis dont outweigh the risks, unlike ...
MADISON, WIS. - Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Pheng Yang, 29, St. Paul, Minnesota, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 5½ years in federal prison for distributing methamphetamine in the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area between January 2018 and February 2019. On July 12, 2019, Yang pleaded guilty to possessing 500 or more grams of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Yang was arrested on February 4, 2019, during his attempted delivery of over 900 grams of methamphetamine to an informant in Eau Claire. At the sentencing, Judge Conley noted that notwithstanding the defendants lack of criminal history and addiction issues, he made a calculated decision to distribute more than 3 kilograms of methamphetamine into the Eau Claire area, which warranted a significant sentence. The charge against the defendant was the result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the West Central
TAUNTON - Five Taunton residents were arrested on drug charges - including trafficking - after police executed a total of six search warrants Friday morning.

Detectives from Taunton, Norton, Easton and Raynham and DEA agents from New Bedford and Worcester split into
Senator Charles Schumer unveiled a bill on Sunday that would ban two drugs that produce a meth-like high and are being sold under the name bath salts.. These so-called bath salts contain ingredients that are nothing more than legally sanctioned narcotics, and they are being sold cheaply to all comers, with no questions asked, at store counters around the country, Schumer, a New York Democrat, said in a statement.. He said he will introduce a bill to outlaw the two synthetic drugs being marketed under names such as Ivory Snow, Red Dove and Vanilla Sky, which are ephedrine and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV). The drugs come in powder and tablet form and are ingested by snorting, injection, smoking and by use of an atomizer. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), users experience an intense high, euphoria, extreme energy, hallucinations, insomnia and are easily provoked to anger. They have emerged as legal alternatives to cocaine and methamphetamines, and one or both have ...
The number of methamphetamine laboratories dismantled by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has fallen from 12,049 in 2013 to 9,306 in 2014. Yet, because the levels of meth consumption are believed to have remained stable the agency believes that production has shifted across the border to Mexico. One of the reasons for this, according to the agency, is the availability of chemicals used phenylacetone, an organic compound banned in the US but accessible in Mexico. Consequently, Mexican cartels have been producing a purer form of meth and increased their market share in the US.. The trend underlines the need for closer international cooperation in precursor control as tight restrictions in one country can have a displacement effect. The work of PRELAC has contributed to building an infrastructure for the sharing of information between control agencies across Latin America and the Caribbean. More work is required to ensure that gaps in control systems do not open opportunities for ...
