Scheduled Psychedelics


On January 19th, 5-MeO-DMT became a scheduled compound,

Every so often a particular unscheduled compound piques the interest of the DEA; following an investigation into the “information regarding the pharmacology, chemistry, trafficking, actual abuse, pattern of abuse, and the relative potential for abuse of a particular substance,” the DEA Administrator can choose to schedule the compound as they see fit. On January 19th, 5-MeO-DMT was condemned to such a fate.

Made widely available during the surge in popularity of research chemicals in the early 1990s, 5- methoxy-N,N-tryptamine—a close relative to N,N-DMT—is a psychedelic of the tryptamine family. Endogenous to a variety of plants and animals all over the world (notably the Bufo Alvarius Toad), 5-MeO-DMT is typically ingested through insufflation or various smoking techniques. Although not as widely recognized as it’s cousin N,N-DMT, 5-MeO-DMT will be missed.
