Not Approved For
Human Consumption
Methoxetamine is uncontrolled in the United States. This means it is generally considered legal to buy, possess, and distribute (sell, trade or give). If sold as a supplement, sales must conform to U.S. supplement laws. If sold for consumption as a food or drug, sales are regulated by the FDA.

Methoxetamine is not a clear analog of any Schedule I or II controlled substance and is therefore not a controlled substance Analogue under the U.S. Analogue Act.
