U.S. FEDERAL LEGAL SUMMARY
2C-C-NBOMe
REGULATED
Yes
STATUS
Scheduled
SCHEDULE
I
On Nov 13, 2015, the DEA extended the emergency scheduling of 25I-, 25C-, and 25B-NBOMe by one year, until Nov 2016.

On Nov 15, 2013, the DEA added 25I-, 25C-, and 25B-NBOMe to Schedule I using their emergency scheduling powers, making those NBOMe compounds "temporarily" in Schedule I for two years. It is nearly guaranteed that after two years, these will be permanently added to Schedule I. Having these three chemicals in Schedule I also makes the rest of the NBOMe series probable Controlled Substance Analogues when intended for human consumption. For these three compounds sales, possession, manufacture, and distribution are all crimes under US law.

One technical note about 25-*-NBOMe legal status: The primary (easiest) synthetic route for producing 25I-, 25C-, and 25B-NBOMe uses the related controlled substance (2C-I, 2C-C, and 2C-B, respectively) as the precursor chemical. It is likely that NBOMe-compounds sourced from lower-end sources might contain tiny, detectable amounts of a controlled substance. Depending on amount and legal venue, that trace amount could affect the legality of the whole batch.
