Wondering what the laws are around using NBOMe?

In New Zealand, the NBOMe drugs 25B-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, 25I-NBOMe are Class B controlled drugs under the Misuse of Drugs act. Other NBOMe drugs are analogues of the Class B drugs above, so they are Class C controlled drugs under the Misuse of Drugs act. This means that having NBOMe drugs in your possession, buying them, selling them or manufacturing them is against the law.

You can also get in trouble with the law if you are found to be impaired by NBOMe while driving.
