Drugs Added to Controlled Substances Schedules – 2019 Oklahoma Laws

cds lawyer okc fentanyl arrestThe yearly update to Oklahoma’s controlled substances lists is upon us again! And, surprise, more drugs are illegal! I don’t know why they’re so eager to update this list since everything on the federal list is automatically considered a controlled dangerous substance in Oklahoma.

The following italicized language was added to the very beginning of the statutes covering Schedule I and II drugs: “The controlled substances listed in this section are included in Schedule I/II “and include any material, compound, mixture or preparation that contains any quantity of the following hallucinogenic substances, their salts, isomers and salts of isomers, unless specifically excepted, when the existence of these salts, isomers and salts of isomers is possible within the specific chemical designation.” No clue why this was added because it doesn’t actually refer to any drugs right after it. The section covering hallucinogenic drugs in Schedule I already has that verbiage. Seems superfluous.

Controlled Substances in Schedule I

The following drugs are now Schedule I drugs:

  • N-(1-phenethylpiperidin-4-yl)-N-phenylcyclopropanecarboxamide (Cyclopropyl fentanyl) Note, this one replaced a very similarly spelled drug that was already on the list. My guess is that they got the wrong spelling the first go round, and now they’re fixing it.
  • N-phenyl-N-[1-(2-phenylethyl)-4-piperidinyl]-butanamide (Butyrl fentanyl)
  • N-ethyl hexadrone
  • Isopropyl-U-47700
  • Para-fluorobutyrl fentanyl
  • Fluoro isobutryrl fentanyl
  • 3-Hydroxy Phencyclidine (PCP)
  • 3-methoxy Phencyclidine (PCP)
  • Pentredone was corrected to Pentedrone

The following fentanyl analogues now have the “common name” next to the chemical name. I guess someone wanted to be extra clear on which version of fentanyl is which.

  • Acetyl fentanyl
  • Crotonyl fentanyl
  • Furanyl fentanyl
  • 4-ANPP
  • Cyclopropyl fentanyl
  • Butyrl fentanyl

Controlled Substances in Schedule II

The following drug has been added to Schedule II:

  • Tianeptine

SB 166 amended 63 O.S. §§ 2-204 & 2-206. It went into effect on November 1, 2019.
