Legal Status

Not Approved For
Human Consumption
Likely Analog
DOC is unscheduled in the United States. It is likely that it would be considered an analog (of DOB), in which case, sales for human consumption or possession with the intent to ingest could be prosecuted under the Federal Analogue Act though we are unaware of any such existing cases (3/05/06).
