The article reports on the voting of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's (FDA) Drug Safety and Risk Management Committee against listing dextromethorphan as a controlled substance. It looks at how such drug became headlines in the U.S. and how the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) considers dextromethorphan a drug of concern. It further notes the assertion of most members that the abuse utilization of such drug does not warrant the use of Controlled Substances Act to address the issue.
