Drug Enforcement Administration adds Code for Marihuana Extracts

The registration of marihuana extracts will take effect January 13, 2017 according to a notice filed by the DEA.  The notice defined marihuana extract as “containing one or more cannabinoids that has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis, other than the separated resin (whether crude or purified) obtained from the plant.” 

Still being regarded as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, requiring an Administrative Controlled Substance Code number “7350”, will allow the DEA to tract the material and aid in compliance with international drug control treaties.

The Administrator, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) has reviewed this rule and by approving it, certifies that it will not have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities/businesses.  The DEA already registers persons handling marihuana extracts but within another already established drug code 7360 and those persons who handle these marihuana extracts have already met DEA’s registration, security, and other statutory and regulatory requirements.  The only direct effect to registrants will to require the addition of the new drug code 7350 to their registration.

SENPA will continue to keep you updated on information that will affect your business.
