Indicates New Matter

The House assembled at 12:00 noon.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from 2 Chronicles 29:11: "My sons, do not now be negligent, for the Lord has chosen you to stand in His presence to minister to Him and to be His ministers and make offerings to Him."

Let us pray. Cleanse our heart and clear our mind, O God, so we can focus on the agenda set before us. Give these men and women the tools to accomplish the work for the people. Guide us through this day that we might accomplish what you desire. Bless our Nation, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who serve in this assembly. Protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

Pursuant to Rule 6.3, the House of Representatives was led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America by the SPEAKER.

After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of Friday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.

MOTION ADOPTED

COMMUNICATION

The following was received:

SOUTH CAROLINA BOARD OF HEALTH
AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL
Healthy People. Healthy Communities

January 5, 2018
The Honorable Charles F. Reid, Clerk
South Carolina House of Representatives
Post Office Box 11867
Columbia, South Carolina 29211

Dear Mr. Reid:

Enclosed, please find the S.C. Board of Health and Environmental Control's (Department) designation of the synthetic opioid MT-45 (Systematic IUPAC Name: 1-cyclohexyl-4-(1,2-diphenylethyl)pi perazine), including its salts, isomers, and salts of isomers, Schedule I of the South Carolina Controlled Substances Act. The Board has taken this action at its meeting on January 4, 2018, pursuant to S.C. Code Section 44-53-160(C), which authorizes the Department to designate a substance as a controlled substance by scheduling it in accordance with an order effecting federal scheduling as a controlled substance.

On December 13, 2017, the U.S. Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) published a final scheduling order to schedule the synthetic opioid MT-45 (Systematic IUPAC Name: 1-cyclohexyl-4-(1,2-diphenylethyl)piperazine), including its salts, isomers, and salts of isomers, into Schedule I. Federal Register, Volume 82, Number 238, pp. 58557-58559; https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-12-13/pdf/2017-26853.pdf?utm_campaign=subscription%20maili ng%20list&utm_source=federalregister.gov&utm_medium=email.

The substances listed in Schedule I are those that have a high potential for abuse, no currently acceptable medical use in treatment in the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision. MT - 45 is an opioid analgesic drug with pharmacological effects similar to morphine. MT - 45 was demonstrated to produce physical dependence in mice. This compound is a piperazine derivative and is structurally unrelated to most other opioids. There are two enantiomers of MT - 45 (R and S). Both enantiomers bind to opioid receptors, however (S)-(+)-MT - 45 binds with a greater affinity than that of (R)-()-MT - 45. In functional studies, (S)-(+)-MT - 45 has an analgesic effect similar to morphine. In comparison, the analgesic effect of (R)-()-MT - 45 is low. Starting in 2013, MT - 45 began appearing on the internet for sale as a 'legal' opioid.

The Department makes this notification in accordance with S.C. Code Section 44-53-160(C), requiring that the Department notify the General Assembly in writing of the change in federal law or regulation and of the corresponding change in South Carolina law. Schedule I controlled substances are found in S.C. Code Section 44-53-190.

As required by law, the enclosed Board Order has been posted on the agency website.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,
Rick Caldwell

SOUTH CAROLINA BOARD OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL

Placement of MT--45 into Schedule I of the S.C. Controlled Substances Act

WHEREAS, pursuant to S.C. Code Section 44-53-160(C), the South Carolina Board of Health and Environmental Control (Board) is authorized to add a substance as a controlled substance if the Federal government has so designated; and

WHEREAS, the U.S. Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) published on December 13, 2017, a final scheduling order to schedule the synthetic opioid MT-45 (Systematic IUPAC Name: 1-cyclohexyl-4-(1,2-diphenylethyl)piperazine), including its salts, isomers, and salts of isomers, into Schedule I. Federal Register, Volume 82, Number 238, pp. 58557-58559; https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-12-13/pdf/2017-26853.pdf?ut m_campaign=subscription%20mailing%20list&utm_source=federalregister.gov&utm_medium=email.; and

WHEREAS, on May 17, 2016, the Secretary General of the United Nations advised the Secretary of State of the United States, by letter, that during the 59th session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs, MT - 45 was added to schedule I of the Single Convention. This letter was prompted by a decision at the 59th session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs in March 2016 to schedule MT - 45 under schedule I of the Single Convention. As a signatory Member State to the Single Convention, the United States is obligated to control MT - 45 under its national drug control legislation, the CSA, in the schedule deemed most appropriate to carry out its international obligations. 21 U.S.C. 811(d)(1); and

WHEREAS, substances listed in Schedule I are those that have a high potential for abuse, no currently acceptable medical use in treatment in the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision. MT - 45 is an opioid analgesic drug with pharmacological effects similar to morphine. MT - 45 was demonstrated to produce physical dependence in mice. This compound is a piperazine derivative and is structurally unrelated to most other opioids. There are two enantiomers of MT - 45 (R and S). Both enantiomers bind to opioid receptors, however (S)-(+)-MT - 45 binds with a greater affinity than that of (R)-()-MT - 45. In functional studies, (S)-(+)-MT - 45 has an analgesic effect similar to morphine. In comparison, the analgesic effect of (R)-()-MT - 45 is low. Starting in 2013, MT - 45 began appearing on the internet for sale as a 'legal' opioid; and

WHEREAS, deaths associated with MT - 45 abuse have occurred in the United States and in Europe. In addition, there have been at least 13 non-fatal overdoses associated with abuse of MT - 45; and

WHEREAS, there are no published studies as to the safety of MT - 45 for human use. The DEA is not aware of any claims or any medical or scientific literature suggesting that MT - 45 has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States. Accordingly, the DEA has not requested that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) conduct a scientific and medical evaluation of the substance's medical utility. Furthermore, the DEA is not required under 21 U.S.C. 811(d)(1) to make any findings required by 21 U.S.C. 811(a) or 812(b), and is not required to follow the procedures prescribed by 21 U.S.C. 811(a) and (b). Therefore, consistent with the framework of 21 U.S.C. 811(d), the DEA concludes that MT - 45 has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and is most appropriately placed in schedule I of the CSA.; and

THEREFORE, the Board of Health and Environmental Control adopts the federal scheduling of MT-45 and amends Section 44-53-190 by adding and designating into Schedule I of the South Carolina Controlled Substances Act: MT-45 (Systematic IUPAC Name: 1-cyclohexyl-4-(1,2-diphenylethyl)piperazine), including its salts, isomers, and salts of isomers.
