I have been told that Israel, since January 2017, has made all DMT derivatives--including 5-MeO--a controlled substance facing the highest penalty (akin to schedule 1 in the USA).

If anyone knows how this can be confirmed, let us know.

As Israel is very involved with psychedelic research ...is it possible this listing has something to do with being able to run clinical trials ?
