why is quinine a controlled substance?
Quinine is not a controlled substance but is banned by the FDA. Some companies still make it and it's used to treat malaria and malaria alone because it causes so many deaths. They figure that if you have malaria you have a good chance of dieing anyways so they prescribe Quinine which can actually help the malaria. It's banned in the US for the use of controlling leg cramps do to it's fatalities. I hope this helps. Good luck to you!
