3-Dimethylheptyl-11-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol [sic]
The chemical name provided by the legislation seems dodgy. The structure shown is based on an alternative name, HU 243, mentioned in the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) Consideration of the major cannabinoid agonists. This document provides a great overview of the wealth of synthetic cannabinoid recepter agonists. Curiously, parts of the report are redacted, “…on the ground that its publication would not be in the public interest.” Would that be the same “public interest” that led to the sacking of Dr. David Nutt, head of the ACMD?

L.A. King calls this name “technically incorrect.” He is being diplomatic. The correct name, he says, is: 9-(Hydroxymethyl)-6,6-dimethyl-3-(2-methyloctan-2-yl)-6a,7,8,9,10,10a-hexahydro-6H-benzo[c]chromen-1-ol. It’s pretty easy to see how mistakes like that happen.

Special thanks to Nick for alerting me I had overlooked 3-(2-Naphthoyl)indole earlier. I always appreciate it when a reader reports an error or omission. Many eyes…
I looked without success for a representative of 3-(2-Naphthoyl)indole. The ACMD report has this telling rationale:
“In structures containing naphthoyl and adamantoyl groups, positional isomers may also be exploited and, as identification of a particular positional isomer could impose an unnecessary burden on forensic providers, we propose broadening the definitions of controlled compounds of these types to include all possible structures.”
It seems banning an infinite number of substances with totally unknown pharmacology is the price paid to avoid overburdening forensic providers. One hopes by this whim they have not forsaken, say, the next Viagra. Or something even more beneficial.

This amendment discretely corrects a significant error in the existing nomenclature which mistakes “methyl” for “methylene.” See structures at left.
I doubt many convictions will be overturned by this blunder, but it seems to me that the substances meant to be captured by this paragraph had, in fact, escaped and remained at large until the amendment came into force.
