Proposed mergers[edit]

Or maybe Controlled substance should be a redirect to Substance control, with the latter as disambig page reading:
Substance control may refer to:
Drug control law, especially in the United States
Regulation of chemicals, controls with respect to toxic substances

Article move[edit]

I am about to move the article to Drug prohibition law because I feel now that its current position may represent some misuse of the term controlled drug
It seems to me now that a controlled drug is a drug which would be prohibited except that it is used under licence, for example, by medical professionals

Move done

Drug control law article needed?[edit]

Seems to me an article is needed at Drug control law, currently a redirect to Drug prohibition law
Many drugs outside the scope of 'prohibition' laws are still controlled
In the UK, even over-the-counter drugs like aspirin and paracetamol are subject to legal controls, and there are prescription-only drugs which are not within the scope the Misuse Drugs Act (the UK's 'drug prohibition' legislation)
