SCH. DATE

AMT is Schedule I in the United States. This means it is illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute (sell, trade or give) without a DEA license.

On Jan 28th, 2003, the DEA announced its intent to emergency schedule AMT. On April 4, 2003, they issued their final order to temporarily place AMT in Schedule I. The temporary scheduling lasted 18 months and on Sep 29, 2004, AMT was placed formally into Schedule I. See the DEA's Federal Register entries for notice of intent to schedule (FR, Vol. 68, No. 18. Jan 28, 2003), their final order to emergency schedule (FR, Vol. 68, No. 65 Apr 4, 2003), and their final placement into Schedule I for more details.

United Kingdom (U.K., UK, England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Britain) #
AMT was added to Scheule 1 as of January 15th, 2015, by changing the definition of tryptamine substitions. See http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2014/3277/introduction/made. Previously AMT was not controlled in Britain and does not fall under the substituted tryptamine rule because its 'substitution' is not on the nitrogen. See the 2001 Misuse of Drugs Act : Schedule 1, regulation 3 (as of Mar 2004). AMT is still (2015) not listed in the UK laws, but is now controlled as a substituted tryptamine under Schedule 1 (not the same as USA Schedule I). (last updated Jan 3, 2015)
