BILL NUMBER:S2447 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to including substances designated pursuant to the federal Analog Act within the definition of controlled substances PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill will give state drug and law enforcement agencies and individuals the another tool to combat the quickly moving world of designer drugs. The Federal Analog Act (21 use § 813) allows scheduling and enforcement against drugs which are substantially structurally similar to those in schedule I or II. This bill will incorporate substances scheduled under this act into New York State Public Health Law. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Public Health Law Section 3306 to incorporate the Federal Analog Act into New York State's Drug Scheduling provisions. JUSTIFICATION: Currently under New York State Law, only a narrow selection of scheduled substances have analog protection. That is, manufacturers often only need to chemically "tweak" a drug to avoid scheduling. This creates a game of cat and mouse, with legislation and enforcement far slower to act than the manufacturers of designer drugs.
