Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations


PART 1301 — REGISTRATION OF MANUFACTURERS, DISTRIBUTORS, AND
DISPENSERS OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES

EXCEPTIONS TO REGISTRATION AND FEES

§1301.26 Exemptions from import or export requirements for personal medical use.

Any individual who has in his/her possession a controlled substance listed in schedules II, III, IV, or V, 
which he/she has lawfully obtained for his/her personal medical use, or for administration to an animal 
accompanying him/her, may enter or depart the United States with such substance notwithstanding 
sections 1002-1005 of the Act (21 U.S.C. 952-955), provided the following conditions are met:


(a) The controlled substance is in the original container in which it was dispensed to the individual; and

(b) The individual makes a declaration to an appropriate customs officer stating:

(b1) That the controlled substance is possessed for his/her personal use, or for an animal 
accompanying him/her; and

(b2) The trade or chemical name and the symbol designating the schedule of the controlled substance 
if it appears on the container label, or, if such name does not appear on the label, the name and 
address of the pharmacy or practitioner who dispensed the substance and the prescription number.


© In addition to (and not in lieu of) the foregoing requirements of this section, a United States resident 
may import into the United States no more than 50 dosage units combined of all such controlled substances 
in the individual's possession that were obtained abroad for personal medical use. 
(For purposes of this section, a United States resident is a person whose residence 
(i.e., place of general abode—meaning one's 
principal, actual dwelling place in fact, without regard to intent) is in the United States.) 
This 50 dosage unit limitation does not apply to controlled substances lawfully obtained in the 
United States 
pursuant to a prescription issued by a DEA registrant.

A True Friend
Freely Advises,
Justly Assists Readily,
Adventures Boldly,
Takes all Patiently,
Defends Courageously
And
Continues a Friend Unchangeably.
