902 KAR 55:030. Schedule IV substances.

 

      RELATES TO: KRS 218A.010-218A.030, 218A.100, 218A.110, 21 C.F.R. 1308.14, 21 U.S.C. 801, 812

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY: KRS 218A.020

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 218A.020(1) authorizes the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to promulgate administrative regulations to add, delete, or reschedule substance enumerated in KRS Chapter 218A. KRS 218A.020(3) authorizes the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to promulgate administrative regulations to control substances controlled under federal law. This administrative regulation designates Schedule IV controlled substances. This administrative regulation differs from the federal regulation because it designates nalbuphine as a Schedule IV controlled substance. The Cabinet for Health and Family Services recognizes that nalbuphine has significant abuse potential, and inclusion on Kentucky's Schedule IV list will help reduce the risk to public health.

 

      Section 1. Stimulants.
