AN ACT RELATIVE TO CLASS A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES.
Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith that all forms of the controlled substance ketamine are classified as a Class A substance, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public safety.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:
Section 31 of chapter 94C of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2008 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out, in line 85, the words “Ketamine Hydrochloride” and inserting in place thereof the following word:- Ketamine.
Approved, September 30, 2010.
