U.S. FEDERAL LEGAL SUMMARY
Etizolam is not controlled in the US. Although it is chemically similar to other benzodiazepines, the U.S. Controlled Substance Analogue Act does not apply, as no similar drugs are in Schedule I or II. Sales of this chemical to end users would likely be considered drug sales and thus regulated by the FDA.
