U.S. FEDERAL LEGAL SUMMARY
TMA-2 is a position isomer of TMA, which is a Schedule I substance, thus TMA-2 is automatically controlled under U.S. Federal law as a Schedule I substance as well.
INTERNATIONAL LAW #
TMA-2 was added to the list of illegal psychotropic substances on Nov 8, 2004 [Moniteur Belge/Belgisch Staatsblad].
TMA-2 is listed (as 2,4,5-trimethoxyamphetamine) in Schedule III of Canada's Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, making it illegal to possess or sell.
EU Council published an order on Dec 6 2003, asking all member states to control 2C-I, 2C-T-2, 2C-T-7, and TMA-2 within 90. See Final Rule here. This binding order went against a non-binding EU Commission's recommendation from earlier in 2003. The Commission did not recommend controlling these chemicals because of lack of evidence of problems: Commission of the European Communities : Report from the Comission to the Council : TMA-2, 2C-I, 2C-T-2, and 2C-T-7.
Finland is moving to control 2C-I, TMA-2, 2C-T-7, and 2C-T-2. The recommendation can be found at: eduskanta.fi (thanks H)
TMA-2 is controlled under Schedule I (BtMG, Sept. 1999).
