Legal Status
by Erowid
Caution :   All legal information should be verified through other sources. [see below]
Not Approved For
Human Consumption
Possible Analog
5-MeO-AMT is unscheduled in the United States. It is possible that it could be considered an analog (of AMT), in which case, sales for human consumption or possession with the intent to ingest could be prosecuted under the Federal Analogue Act.

The DEA and the US Department of Justice consider 5-MeO-AMT a controlled substance analogue, making it a Schedule I substance when intended for human consumption.

There are currently several cases pending in U.S. federal court against online vendors for selling research chemicals. These cases may address the question of whether this chemical could be legally defined as an analog of a scheduled substance. We have been told of prosecutions for possession and distribution.
