Rule Details

Rule Number: 12-E05
Title: Regulated Drugs Rule
Type: Emergency
Status: Adopted
Agency: Department of Health
Legal Authority: 3 V.S.A. §§ 801(b)(11), 844 and 3003(a) and 18 V.S.A. § 4202.
Summary: Adding these substances to the regulated drugs rule will make their sale, manufacture, possession, and use illegal in Vermont. Exceptions in the statute allow for legitimate uses of regulated drugs.
Persons Affected: Vermont Department of Health including Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program (ADAP) and the Medical Practice Board, the State Board of Health, the Board of Pharmacy, the Department of Public Safety, other law enforcement agencies, Attorney General's Office, State's Attorneys, the defense bar, the judiciary, mental and behavioral health providers, hospital emergency departments and retailers of these substances.
Economic Impact: It is not anticipated that the placement of these substances on Vermont's list of regulated drugs will have a significant impact on Vermont's economy. Currently these substances are only sold by online and traditional retailers. If Vermont bans these substances for sale to the public, the retailers would need to remove these products.
