On October 4, the United States Sentencing Commission held a public hearing and received testimony from experts on synthetic cathinones, including their chemical structure, pharmological effects, trafficking patterns, and community impact.  The Commission's hearing agenda, including statements and recommendations of testifying experts (e.g., Dr. Terrence Boos, Professor Gregory Dudley, Neil Doherty), is available here.  The Commission live streamed the hearing and anticipates making a video recording of the hearing available in the near future.
