The psychedelic drug AMT, which acts in a similar way to LSD, should be banned along with other deadly substances in a group of chemicals known as tryptamines, which also includes 5-MeO-DALT, known as “rockstar” or “green-beans”. The ACMD’s experts have gathered evidence which shows these highly potent drugs have become widely available in the UK, but they currently fall outside of controls in the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. The council proposes expanding the current description of the tryptamine family of compounds under the Act to ensure that newly created drugs are also banned.
