Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 480-34-.02 - Ketamine

This rule was adopted to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public. This rule places Ketamine under Schedule III of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act, Code Section 16-13-27(8). The Board finds:

(a) that Ketamine has an extremely high potential for abuse;
(b) that scientific evidence and scientific knowledge of the pharmacological effects of Ketamine demonstrate that the public would be at risk if it is not regulated as a controlled substance;
(c) that the pattern of abuse of Ketamine and the scope and significance of that abuse support regulation;
(d) that there exists an imminent peril to the public health and welfare with regard to the abuse of Ketamine;
(e) that Ketamine has the same risk to the public health of citizens of the State of Georgia as any substance already contained in the Controlled Substances Act;
(f) that Ketamine has no known precursor already scheduled under the Act; and
(g) that the DEA has filed the intent to add Ketamine to the Federal Controlled Substances Act under Schedule III.
