Dimethyltryptamine (DMT): Legal consequences
Last modified: Sunday, 31. May 2009 - 1:47 pm
DMT was demonstrated to be hallucinogenic in 1956. The drug is explicitly named as a Schedule I drug in the federal Controlled Substances Act. DMT is also illegal in the United Kingdom, where it is classified as a Class A drug.
Federal guidelines, regulations, and penalties
The most common plant constituents of ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi and Psychotria viridis) are not specifically scheduled in the United States. Neither is the ayahuasca brew specifically named as a scheduled substance. However, P. viridis contains DMT. Under the DEA’s guidelines, a plant or brew is illegal if it contains DMT or any other controlled substance.
