Dimethocaine, also known as DMC or larocaine, is a compound with a stimulatory effect. This effect resembles that of cocaine, although dimethocain appears to be less potent. Just like cocaine, dimethocain is addictive due to its stimulation of the reward pathway in the brain. However, dimethocain is a legal cocaine replacement in some countries and is even listed by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) under the category “synthetic cocaine derivatives”. The structure of dimethocain, being a 4-aminobenzoic acid ester, resembles that of procaine. It is found as a white powder at room temperature.
