Deuterated LSD/MDMA as legal high

Deuterated drugs are separate entities according to the FDA, thus perhaps recreational drugs are legal if deuterated.
  [vote for,

The FDA treats deuterated drugs as separate entities for approval. Although the regulatory agencies are different, perhaps deuterated LSD and MDMA are legal (?!)

In Britain, every molecule is illegal. [Wrongfellow, Apr 29 2018]


       Yes, they are probably legal until they are first used, whereupon the legislation will be embroadened to encompass them.

       There's nothing like a nice bit of embroadery. And this one's marked out with compasses. Do you suppose it's masonic?

       This is a serious question:   

       What do you mean when you use the words "legal" and "illegal"?   

       It's also a surprisingly difficult question to answer, and one which gave me a few sleepless nights.   

       Common responses such as "Everyone knows", "use a dictionary", "[such-and-such] is illegal" and "the so-and-so act says ..." are not answers to the question.   

       Honestly, give that question some serious contemplation, and you will never see the world in quite the same way again. The process may feel a little like Neo's un-podding in The Matrix, or Ford Prefect's "Ask a glass of water" quip.
