The structure lacks stereochemistry and the name should be
I removed the phrase "...in order to fulfill the requirements of international law" from the sentence "Circa 1993, the DEA added cathinone to the Controlled Substances Act's Schedule I in order to fulfill the requirements of international law.".
The reasons are two:
1. The existence of "International Law" is questionable in many contexts, but especially so regarding treaties like the Convention on Psychotropic Substances. See the discussion page on that topic to get an idea what I mean.
2. No reference is cited to support the claim that Cathinone's Schedule I listing was made in order to fulfill any requirement by "International Law." Verification of such a claim would require not only the CPS's listing, but some statement by the DEA. Maybe such a statement was made, but it isn't cited.
--- Hi, what does this even mean? "Persons driving under the influence of the drug have had their serum or urine tested for the presence of cathinone and norephedrine, a major Metabolite."
