MDAI still banned despite law change

Fri, 23 Dec 2016

MDAI will still be a banned in the Isle of Man in the New Year, despite it no longer being a Class C controlled drug.

The former legal high was banned in 2012, but new legislation prohibiting the import, production and possession of psychoactive substances means it will no longer be necessary to list it as Class C.

The Department of Health and Social Care says MDAI is one of the psychoactive substances that will be covered by the new law.

The changes were approved in Tynwald in August, and are similar to the UK's Pyschoactive Substances Act, which acts as a blanket ban on legal highs.
