(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 1985 by transferring dronabinol and its stereoisomers from Schedule 1 to Schedule 2. This follows the removal of dronabinol and its stereoisomers from the Schedule of designated drugs to which section 7(4) of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 applies, in the Misuse of Drugs (Designation) (Variation) Order 1995 (S.I. 1995/2047). These Regulations also remove propylhexedrine from Schedule 4 to the 1985 Regulations, in consequence of the removal of propylhexedrine from control under the 1971 Act by the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (Modification) Order 1995 (S.I. 1995/1966).
