Legal Status
by Erowid
Caution :   All legal information should be verified through other sources. [see below]
Not Approved For
Human Consumption
Likely Analog
DOI 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 (6/21/04). DOI is regularly used in animal and in vitro research, Scheduling DOI would impose substantial costs to brain research.
