Confusion about the law
#1
Need some help determining the legality of some Rchems, I'm not looking for legal advise per-say, but just your take, according to the law. (To my understanding they appear to be legal)

  The compound in question is N-Ethylhexedrone

Is N-Ethylhexedrone a stereoisomeric form of Cathinone? as N-Ethylhexedrone (commonly as Hexen) is a novel synthetic stimulant of the cathinone chemical class(but would this make it a steroisomeric form?). Under Schedule III it says that "Cathone" not "Cathones" is prohibited. And cathone itself is derived from the khat plant, making just cathone itself prohibited would it not?. Also, the law states as follows:-
2. Any stereoisomeric form of a substance for the time being specified in paragraph 1 of this Part of this Schedule not being phenylpropanolamine.
3. Any salt of a substance for the time being specified in paragraph 1 or 2 of this Part of this Schedule.
4. Any preparation of other produce containing a substance for the time being specified in any of paragraphs 1 to 3 of this Part of this Schedule not being phenylpropanolamine.

The Second compound in question is Dimethocaine-
The law does not state that analogs of a certain drug are prohibited but again any steroisomeric form of a substance would be. Then again, some say Dimethocaine is not an analog of cocaine.

Please let me know your take as I would like to stay within the law. I would really appreciate any info you could give, thank you.

In the UK, cathinones are controlled by two generic clauses implemented as statutory implements:

Quote:Is N-Ethylhexedrone a stereoisomeric form of Cathinone

No, a stereoisomer is a specific kind of isomerism in which two chemicals possess the same atoms and bonds but differ in their three-dimensional configuration. N-ethylhexedrone is probably best described as a homolog of cathinone.

Similarly. dimethocaine is not a stereoisomer of cocaine.
