(H) Tetrahydrofuran fentanyl (N-phenyl-N-[1-(2-phenylethyl)piperidin-4-yl]oxolane-2-carboxamide)

(3) That the pattern of abuse of these compounds and the scope and significance of that abuse support regulation;
(4) That there exists an imminent peril to the public health and welfare with regard to the abuse of these compounds;
