Q: What is the current legal status of DOI (2,5-DIMETHOXY-4-IODOAMPHETAMINE)?

A: As a research chemical, DOI is not illegal in the United States. For human consumption as a recreational psychoactive, it would very likely fall under the federal "Controlled Substance Analogue Act" (CSA) created by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986. For more information about the Analogue Act, see our Analog Law Vaults.



DOI would likely be ruled an analog of DOB, federally schedule I, if it sold for human consumption as a psychoactive. The Bromine in DOB is replaced by Iodine. If it is used in animal or in vitro research, its status is less clear.
