Drug policy differences

Shallow search of the interwebz hasnt yielded results to what drugs/remedies are legal in the us but illegal in Europe and we dont want a poor little boy`s curiosity go to waste so lets try this.
I would like you peoples who are aware of drugs /remedies legal in one of the areas, but illegal in the other to post their names (the drugs, not usernames,silly) and, if possible their function (again, the drugs, but you can state yours as well, if you found it)
I will start with posting benedryl, which kills allergic reactions almost immediately, US legal, EU not so much.

Last I knew was that salvia was legal in some states in the U.S. and illegal in many other places…when taken correctly produces intense visual hallucinations and physical feelings

As far as I suspect (I have not looked into this so don’t quote me) drugs like Adderall, Percocet and Ritalin are common in the U.S but are considered prehistoric medicines throughout the rest of the developed world.

Yes, there are treatments that are more effective than those drugs, maybe not in every case, but the U.S over prescribes them as treatment, and I think it is more that they are profitable than effective.

Other countries have found better treatments, even cheaper treatments, new drugs and often methods that do not need drugs at all, but they are not as profitable as mainstream drugs like the ones I said.
