I was going to leave this as a comment, but points for answering are nice! I'm sure that Hispimple meant to say that WITH a prescription (which you would be receiving from which ever doctor's care you're under at that time), Methadone is legal. Its a strong medicine used when a person is in serious pain. It is also often used to aid a person that is withdrawing from a highly addictive street drug that is an opiate. Although it is said that it is not addictive, I know that it is. I've seen it's effects up close & personal. So to answer your question, it is legal only when used correctly, but if you have no medical reason AND proper permission from the proper medical powers that be (ie doctors), then it is illegal to have and use. P.S. I'm sorry about the spelling of the first answering member of this question. The site's spell check will not let me post it unless I allow your user name to be spelled "hispimple." So sorry!

It's methadrone not methdrone it's a new drug out has the same effects as Cocaine and I think it is illegal now in the uk. America can ban all new drugs coming in but the uk can't simply because it says on the label not for human consumption  and the suppliers are just naming it plant feed. I saw on the news thier last week that they were bringing in a ban for it and that it hasn't been tested on animals never mind humans. I have tried it and it is brilliant, better than cocaine since it is mixed but I wouldn't go using it if you never took drugs before.

Not if it is prescribed by a physician for treatment of heroin addiction, oxycontin addiction, or pain relief.

It is an analogue of MDMA and therefore illegal to import or distribute in Australia.

MethadRone not Methadone .Two very different substances. Methadrone has an R after the d and provided it is sold as plantfood it is legal to sell and buy.For now anyway. I would still be discrete about using it in public though.

It depends upon what country you are in, and what you need the methadone for.  In Ontario, Canada, Methadone is a highly controlled substance, and cannot be obtained without a prescription from a specially certified doctor and pharmacist.  To purchase it any other way, such as via an online pharmacy is illegal and considered drug dealing.  Ontario's government, through the Ministry of Health runs a Methadone Maintenance Treatment program, and that program provides harm reduction through the use of Methadone for some 14,000 + people.  80% of those treated in the program use Methadone to either treat chronic pain or oxycodone addiction, and the remaining 20% are heroin addicts.  So, if you're buying methadone without the supervision of a doctor, you are not only doing something illegal, but putting your health and life at great risk.
If you are a heroin addict and you want to kick your heroin habit, see your doctor and get supervised treatment.  Do not purchase methadone online, because any pharmacy that would sell you methadone without a prescription is likely breaking the law and may even be selling you a counterfeit drug full of poisonous heavy metals.  Methadone when used properly and under the supervision of a doctor can be very effective in helping to kick a drug addiction or a chronic pain problem.  If you're serious about kicking your heroin addiction, please see your doctor and go about things the right way.

Methadone is a drug of the class opiates, which also includes morphine, heroin and codeine, known for its analgesic property as well as its ability to diminish the body's addiction to other opiates. The drug in most cases is taken orally in solution form and produces somewhat similar effects as compared to morphine and heroin though to a lesser extent.

The drug is classified as a Schedule II drug in the United States and its use is heavily restricted obtained for use in medical programs such as the one launched in the US to alleviate addiction to heroin known as Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) or by way of special prescriptions.

However in the UK its availability is less regulated and the drug is obtainable by way of a simple doctor's prescription. Though it is not illegal to buy methadone the drug is not available in most pharmacies owing to its association with heroin addiction treatment as well as being an opiate class drug itself. The drug has been known to cause severe reactions in some people especially when taken in combination with substances like alcohol or other analgesics and the numbers of fatalities due to methadone intake have risen considerably in recent times.
