OCCUPATIONS AND PROFESSIONS
CONTROLLED DRUG ACT
[RSA 318-B:1-c contingently repealed by 1998, 359:2; see contingent repeal note set out below.]
I. The legislature intends that the provisions of paragraph III of this section shall remain in effect until such time as flunitrazepam is scheduled by the commissioner of the department of human services in accordance with and pursuant to RSA 318-B.
II. The legislature finds that flunitrazepam, marketed under the trade name rohypnol, which has a sedative, hypnotic, and amnesiac effect, has no acceptable medical uses in the United States and carries a high potential for abuse. Therefore, flunitrazepam meets the criteria for placement on schedule I of controlled drugs.
III. Notwithstanding the provisions of RSA 318-B:1-a, relative to scheduling by rulemaking of the commissioner of the department of health and human services, flunitrazepam shall be scheduled as a schedule I controlled drug.
