NM-2-AI (N-methyl-2-aminoindane) is a psychoactive drug and research chemical that has been sold online as a designer drug. It is a rigid analogue of methamphetamine.
NM-2-AI (N-methyl-2-aminoindane) is a lesser-known novel stimulant substance of the aminoindane class. It is structurally related to 2-AI and MDAI.
In comparison to 2-AI, this compound has a lower potency, a longer duration and very similar effects.
The toxicity and long-term health effects of recreational NM-2-AI use do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dosage is unknown. This is because NM-2-AI has very little history of human usage.
NM-2-AI is currently believed to be a grey area compound within most parts of the world. This means that it is not known to be specifically illegal within any country but people may still be charged for its possession under certain circumstances such as under analogue laws and with intent to sell or consume.
