Report to the Legislature on Changes the Board has Made to the Controlled Substance Schedules Maintained by the Board in Minnesota Rules
[They recommend that the state legislature to take out the italicized words and add the bold words.]
Subd. 8. Add, delete, or reschedule substances. The state Board of Pharmacy may, by rule, add substances to or delete or reschedule substances listed in this section. The state Board of Pharmacy, after consulting with the Advisory Council on Controlled Substances, shall annually, on or before May 1 of each year, conduct a review of the placement of controlled substances in the various schedules.
In making a determination regarding a substance, the Board of Pharmacy shall consider the following: The actual or relative potential for abuse, the scientific evidence of its pharmacological effect, if known, the state of current scientific knowledge regarding the substance, the history and current pattern of abuse, the scope, duration, and significance of abuse, the risk to public health, the potential of the substance to produce psychic or physiological dependence liability, and whether the substance is an immediate precursor of a substance already controlled under this section. The state Board of Pharmacy may include any nonnarcotic drug authorized by federal law for medicinal use in a schedule only if such drug must, under either federal or state law or rule, be sold only on prescription.
The Board of Pharmacy may not reschedule a drug that is in schedule I, except that the Board may reschedule such drug pursuant to subdivision 12 of this section.
