What is The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act (CSA) (1970)?
This was the last major change in controlled drug legislation. It is also known as the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The CSA repealed and replaced Harrison and DACA, but like DACA it relied on Congress' regulation of interstate trade for its power. The new approach of the CSA depends on record keeping and registration requirements of sufficient detail to be able to track transactions between manufacturers, suppliers, practitioners, and consumers. The concept of the DEA number originated with the CSA.
