Merge with Bufotenin[edit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bufotenin I think two articals on the same chemical under two names is not productive. Like putting "caffeine" and "theine" as two separate pages when they're the same thing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.192.199.52 (talk) 02:36, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

They are different chemicals. I've deleted the incorrect statement in this article. Moss&Fern (talk) 05:57, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Businessman's Special[edit]

Did somebody make that up?Miserlou 17:51, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

I've heard it referred to as such, but I have no sources to cite if you need them Lxx 22:33, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

I've heard only DMT referred to in this way in work by Michael Valentine Smith, but DMT and 5-MeO-DMT are often confused for one another so this could very well be. - FV 18:07, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Jonathan Ott mentions this in Pharmacotheon stating; 'In 1966, in the course of a sensational interview published in Playboy magazine, the by then "controversial ex-Harvard professor, prime partisan and prophet of LSD" Leary stated "in years to come, it will be possible to have a lunch-hour psychedelic session; in a limited way that can be done now with DMT'. Ott goes on to say, 'In part because of Leary's mention in Playboy of the possibility of a "lunch-hour psychedelic session" with DMT, the drug came to be known popularly as the "businessman's trip" (Bigwood & Ott 1977), the entheogen which a businessman could use on his lunch-hour, returning clear-headed to the office world to finance and lucre!'. This would explain the variations such "businessman's special", "businessman's trip", "businessman's lunch", and so forth.--Astavats (talk) 22:19, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Pharmacology section?[edit]

As with most with any drug article I feel a pharmacology section would be fitting. 5-MeO-DMT's pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics would enhance the worth of this article. If anyone with more pharmacological knowledge could help please do so. Thank you.--Astavats (talk) 21:45, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

US DEA Proposed Rule[edit]

As of August 12, 2009, the DEA has propesed making this a schedule 1 drug. Keep an eye out for it's scheduling and update when appropriate. 66.166.38.18 (talk) 14:18, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

The citation for the October 28, 2009 reopening of period for public comment is the best I could figure as the information is scattered and poorly organized. Viewing the Proposed Rules opens the actual notice of reopening the comment period and statement of the reason for doing so. For anyone interested in viewing all the documents and comments (or making a comment)going to Regulations.gov home page, using dmt as a search term and clicking the DEA agency checkbox and both the Open and Closed Comment Period checkboxes, then clicking around on the results in View by Relevance and View by Docket areas seems the best method now. Perhaps the organization will be tidied up somehow later to make this more informative and functional. - Moss&Fern (talk) 02:03, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Created an External Link for Regulations.gov search results for dea-331 which now brings up both dockets. Moss&Fern (talk) 12:23, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Spelling of bufotenin(e)[edit]

Somebody asked if "bufotenine" is still used anymore. I think the question was in an edit summary for this article. It's the official US government spelling. See http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2010/2010-512.htm. Moss&Fern (talk) 22:26, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Religious Use[edit]

The Religious Use subsection mainly references some obscure cult. If cult is notable, give it its own article and put info there. If not, remove info.-Zyrath (talk) 03:44, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Legality section[edit]

The way it is structured gives the impression Wikipedia is US-centric, should be fixed. 85.228.221.187 (talk) 17:35, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
