Exceptional Absences

Russia

Modafinil is illegal in Russia for domestic consumption. In Russia modafinil is classified as a schedule II drug meaning that it is illegal to obtain, hold, trade or manufacture modafinil unless you are a hospital, military or a state-sponsored research facility. This extreme reaction on part of Russian authorities to a mild stimulant has led to modafinil being widely unknown and unused in Russia.

China

Chinese Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) in a september 2005 food and drug safety release has designated modafinil as a class 1 drug in the same category as LSD and methamphetamines. The publication lists many psychotropic drugs in the first class rating and modafinil is number 46 out of 100 first class compounds. It is a criminal offense to possess modafinil in China without expressly justified legal permission – which by technicality of law can carry at least seven years in prison to life imprisonment, plus a financial penalty based on the amount of drugs you were caught in possession of. These harsh laws surrounding modafinil in China have led to the substance being virtually known there.
