Existing law, the California Uniform Controlled Substances Act, categorizes controlled substances into 5 schedules and places the greatest restrictions on those substances contained in Schedule I. Under existing law, the substances in Schedule I are deemed to have a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use while substances in Schedules II through V are substances that have an accepted medical use, but have the potential for abuse. Existing law categorizes fenfluramine as a Schedule IV controlled substance. Existing law makes it a crime to possess, possess for sale, or to sell materials, compounds, mixtures, or preparations containing specified controlled substances, including fenfluramine, as specified.
This bill would remove fenfluramine from the list of Schedule IV controlled substances under the California Uniform Controlled Substances Act and remove it from the list of controlled substances that are a crime to possess or sell, as specified.
