Stimulants (also referred to as psychostimulants) is an overarching term that covers many drugs including those that increase activity of the body, drugs that are pleasurable and invigorating, or drugs that have sympathomimetic effects. Due to their rendering a characteristic "up" feeling, stimulants are also occasionally referred to as "uppers". Stimulants are widely used throughout the world as prescription medicines as well as without a prescription (either legally or illicitly) as performance-enhancing or recreational drugs. The most frequently prescribed stimulants as of 2013 were lisdexamfetamine, methylphenidate, and amphetamine. It is estimated that the percent of the population that has abused amphetamine-type stimulants (e.g., amphetamine, methamphetamine, MDMA, etc.) and cocaine combined is between .8% and 2.1%.

    National  Is anybody aware of proposed legislation that will classify AR uppers as regulated receivers?

    There has been some movement by the ATF to classify some AR uppers as a regulated receiver even though they don't have a hammer or firing mechanism. I am wondering if there is any proposed legislation in the US that is attempting to do that by law rather then ATF making up new determinations?

    National  Is there any federal license required to assemble and sell AR uppers in country?

    The assembly and sale of the uppers would be intended for profit.
