Today Attorney General Sessions applauded the Chinese government for announcing that it would restrict two chemical precursors to fentanyl.

“Synthetic opioids are killing thousands of people in communities across this nation, and we know that many of these substances originated in China,” Attorney General Sessions said. “President Trump and I have repeatedly brought up this issue with the Chinese government, and we are working to restrict the flow of these drugs to our country.  I am pleased to see China taking steps that will protect not just their own people from this poison, but the American people, too. I hope that China will continue to take steps like this and eventually schedule all fentanyl analogues, just as the DEA is doing.”

In 2017, China scheduled a number of fentanyl-class substances, including carfentanil, furanyl fentanyl, valeryl fentanyl, acryl fentanyl, U-47700, MT-45, PMMA, and 4,4’ DMAR.  Last week, China’s Ministry of Public Security announced that, effective Feb. 1, NPP and 4ANPP, substances that can be used to make illicit fentanyl, would also be scheduled.
