5-MeO-MET (5-Methoxy-N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine) is a relatively rare designer drug from the substituted tryptamine family, related to compounds such as N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine and 5-MeO-DMT.[1][2][3] It was first synthesised in the 1960s and was studied to a limited extent,[4][5] but was first identified on the illicit market in June 2012 in Sweden.[6] It was made illegal in Norway in 2013,[7] and is controlled under analogue provisions in numerous other jurisdictions.
