3-Methylamphetamine (3-MA; PAL-314) is a stimulant drug from the amphetamine family. It is self-administered by mice to a similar extent to 4-fluoroamphetamine and has comparable properties as a monoamine releaser,[1] although with a more balanced release of all three monoamines, as opposed to the more dopamine/noradrenaline selective fluoro analogues.[2]

3-Methylamphetamine has been investigated for military and para-military use as a less-lethal psychochemical weapon.[3]
