Temporary scheduling extended

On Wednesday, February 29, 2012, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) issued a final order to extend the temporary scheduling of the five synthetic cannabinoids into Schedule I drugs of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This extension will span through August 29th, 2012 or until rule making proceedings are completed, whichever comes first.

The proposed rule would permanently classify the five synthetic cannabinoids as Schedule I drugs.
