* Under Emergency Scheduling
On April 4, 2003, the DEA placed both AMT and 5-MeO-DIPT into Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act by emergency ruling. The initial Intent to Schedule notice was published in the Federal Register on January 28, 2003. Both chemicals are now illegal to buy, sell, or possess in the United States without a DEA license.

Both AMT and 5-MeO-DIPT have been growing in popularity since they first became widely available in 1998 and 1999. In their Intent to Schedule notice, the DEA noted that "both substances have commonly been found in both tablet and capsule forms." There is some reason to believe that the sale of these chemicals in tablet form may have had an impact on the decision to schedule them. Material in tablet form is much easier to sell in single dose quantities, and is also much easier for the unscrupulous dealer to sell as "ecstasy".

This scheduling follows relatively closely on the heels of the emergency scheduling of 2C-T-7, BZP, and TFMPP in September 2002 (see Erowid Extracts No. 3). In all, 15 chemicals have been scheduled in the last 7 years.
