Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Drug 6PMA> declared illegal By JEFF CARRUTHTRS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The federal health department has placed the drag "PMA" on Schedule H, the restricted list of the Food and Drugs Act, alongside LSD and other hallucinogens. PMA tas been implicated in a number of recent drug-associ- ated deaths in Canada. Tachnically called 4-methox- yamphetamine and dso known as the drug is considered to be "extremely dangerous" by health authorities in Ottawa A. B. Morrison, head of the health protection branch, said Wednesday that PMA has no known legitimate medical use. It first appeared in Canada on the drug market early this year and has since spread to al- most every city in Canada. Formerly used and known only as a chemical compound, it is now believed to be manu- factured domestically by under- ground laboratories for use as a hallucinogen and stimulant. Under Schedule H, the drug now becomes illegal to possess without special government au- thorization Unauthorized possession, on summary conviction, can result in a fine, six months in jail, or bath on a first offence; S2 000 fine, one year in jail or both for subsequent offences. On indictment and unauthorized possession can re- sult in a fine of a jail term of 3 years or both. For trafficking, summary conviction can result in an 18- month jail term and an in- dictment and conviction can re- sult in a 10-year jail term. to grave WINDSOR, England (Reuter) Hundreds of camera-laden tourists flocked to the grave of the Duke of Windsor after offi- cials forgot to rope off the pri- vate section of Windsor Castle grounds where he as buried.
