DS Craze Lawsuit and FDA Action
Stock up boys and girls.
A class action lawsuit claims is not natural and contains amphetamine (analog act), despite labeling claims that it is “safe” and can be used by students for studying. I was told amphetamine is a loose term meaning the ingredient is a designer stimulant related to amphetamine and would fall under the stimulant analog act.
A second lawsuit is being filed in New Jersey on similar grounds this week naming DS, a distributor and several retailers. Additionally WADA is working closely with the FDA office of criminal investigations after several companies submitted their GCMS identification findings to the organization and claimed Craze will further tarnish the industry with what seems poised to become the next designer stimulant nightmare.
What I have been told from a source close to the New Jersey based lawsuit.
A. The compounds in Craze are synthetically made and not an extract. No NDI has been filed for these new dietary ingredients making them illegal to sell under DSHEA without submitting NDI notification. They could qualify as dietary ingredients if the substances present are indeed extracts of an herb or botanical, which they are not. They are synthetically made in a laboratory.
B. The main active is a potent new synthetic designer stimulant possibly related to amphetamine under the analog act.
C. The designer stimulant has a high probability to be poorly researched, no human testing, and possibly dangerous despite the companies continuous promotion that it is safe, natural, DSHEA, and GRAS. imageshack.us/photo/my-images/856/extractr.jpg
D. The label depicts a safe natural product yet contains a synthetic design stimulant behind the clever natural extract labeling.
E. Legal and government action from the FDA will be immanent.
F. Stuff will hit the fan very soon when the toxicologists and full laboratory findings are released by the companies that have organized the testing.

I was pretty confused reading even your log indicating no stims and just nootropics yet everyone seems to get wired and have pretty intense reactions from this stuff. Candidly, I am all for people doing as they please with their bodies. The problem with DS is that using an illegal synthetic, at this time, in a product will likely help accelerate tighter regulations and/or larger scale bans.

Mass spec is easy and inexoensive to run which us why I get so annoyed by supp companies saying they need proprietary blends to protect their formulations from competitors.
I would not be the least bit surprised if a competitor ran mass spec on Craze and brought it up to lawyers they know or used. Something had to get ball rolling here for a law firm to spend time in money testing or performing due diligence.
Allegations are always hedged in pleadings even if one gas the smoking gun in their possession so any use of "upon information and belief" type of language does not reflect whether lab test were already conclusive.

i cant find anything relating to this matter, and considering it was the op's first post i hope to god this isnt a sales ploy to boost business...

Mineral, hell... EVERYTHING made in this industry is synthetically produced.
#2- there is ZERO proof there is anything illegal in the product(controlled substance).
#3- this is being headed by a person + law firm. This means the end result will be a payout/settlement.
Everyone needs to realize you can sue ANYONE for ANYTHING. Doesn't make you right.

lol @ the newbies who magically show up out of nowhere to feed like rabid dogs on the cannon fodder.
Listen, folks. Some of us have been around here for a LONG time. Coming into a thread where a new person has just dropped a bombshell is about as credible as me walking into a hospital and slapping people as a cure for cancer. I don't know who the OP is, but I'm willing to bet that it's someone who is already on this board and is just posting this up to remain "anonymous" - in other words, a competitor who is acting to defame DS in order to better promote their competing product. Happens all the time here. It's a low and dirty tactic, but hey, some companies work like that. It's stupid, and to the consumer (YOU AND ME), it's really really low. Sometimes, the supplement industry people make politicians look like superheroes. Ugh...
ANYWHO... the lawsuit. Oh noez! The FDA is taking something away again?? I'm shocked. I'm absolutely astounded. I can't believe that they are... oh, no, wait... I can totally believe it. Folks, whatever is in Craze, the feds could declare it "illegal" in a matter of days if they want. Instead of issuing a memorandum saying that as of April 1 all nutritional and sports supplements containing cocaplopadecalolamine must stop using that ingredient as it is being reclassified to a "controlled substance" and will cease all production and sales of that ingredient, they'll act and declare it unlawful and THEN come back and start pimp-slapping supplement companies and manufacturers. Is this surprising? Nope. Is this right? IMHO, nope. It's absolutely stupid and just another example of how retarded things have become in this country.
So to all who have wanted to try it - go out and buy some Craze.
