HR 1254, The Synthetic Drug Act of 2011, passed the U. S. House of Representatives on December 8, 2011.  The bill has been referred to the Committee on the Judiciary in the Senate.

We are asking everyone to call:

  • Sen. Rand Paul’s office:  (202) 224-4343 When you call, urge his staff to urge him to uphold the Unanimous Consent Agreement on HR 1254.
  • Sen. Patrick Leahy’s office: (202) 224-4242 Ask him to allow HR 1254 to bypass the Committee of the Judiciary and let it go straight to a full senate vote.
  • Sen. Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader’s office: (202) 224-3542 Ask him to do everything in his power to bring HR 1254 up for a full vote in the U.S. Senate as quickly as possible.

    The trouble with the house version of this bill is in the attempt to control everything that is an agonist at the *endogenous* CB1 receptor. This is hugely problematic. Whatever consensus legislation arises needs to keep this out. The analog law as originally written (with the OR) was better. Better to delve into case law and figure out how that was turned into a de facto “AND” provision and fix that with the new legislation.

  2. Ahhh. Hadn’t noticed that or had anyone point that out to me before. However, there’s only one case that I know of where they are using the Analogue Act. I’ve talked to those ‘in the know’ at the DEA several times about this issue, especially relating to Max’s case. Apparently, the Act is very difficult to prosecute under because your average Joe (jury) can too easily be confused by the technical, science jargon that is thrown at them, presumably for that very reason. Thanks for pointing this out.
