This resource manual provides the names, the structures, the identities, and the actions of the Federal scheduled drugs as well as the history and the authority that have made them scheduled.
The manual presents an alphabetical listing of all drugs that have been involved with the Controlled Substances Act since its enactment, together with all synonyms that have been used in the medical or the scientific community. Also included are the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) code identification numbers, the pharmacological classification, the Chemical Abstracts Service registry numbers, a cross-reference to the authority that gave the drug its present status, and a directing reference to the location of the correct chemical structure. The manual traces the history of the U.S. drug laws, with greater attention given to those currently in force. An index covers all drugs that have been involved with the Controlled Substances Act based upon their chemical structures. Also included are a numerical listing of all DEA code numbers and the substances to which they refer and a chronological listing, with a short abstract, of all Federal Register entries that have been used as the authority for changes in the law. There is a reprint of the official current (April 1986) listings of drugs and of exempt preparations. All drugs that have been assigned Drug Code numbers, whether controlled or not, are presented by their empirical formulas. Appended drug legislation and the Federal sentencing guidelines for drug offenses
