Kratom legal states and legal buds
Posted On July 15, 2021
LEGAL states have passed a bill to legalise the drug known as kratom.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet declared it a controlled substance but has said it could be used for pain relief.
It could also be used as a substitute for opioid painkillers.
The bill was approved in the US House of Representatives and in the Senate by a margin of 54-38.
In the US, the legal use of kratom is regulated by state laws.
The FDA has said that while it is illegal to grow kratom plants for commercial purposes, the drug can be used to treat pain and other conditions.
In some states, the use of the drug is also legal for people with a doctor’s recommendation.
However, the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has issued a warning about the risks of kamputas use.
“While the DEA recognizes that the risk of kangaroos being killed by consuming kratom remains a risk, the risks associated with its use are significantly greater than the risks posed by the ingestion of marijuana,” the agency said.
“This drug can have dangerous interactions with prescription drugs, which may result in severe withdrawal symptoms and other negative side effects.”
In January, the DEA issued a similar warning about kratom, calling it a “potentially dangerous” drug.
In August, the FDA said it was “aware of the risks” of the use and that kratom could lead to a fatal overdose.
But the DEA said the drug was not yet approved for use by the public and was only “used in research”.
Kratom is a plant native to Southeast Asia, growing in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.
It is grown by a local population and is also used as an herbal supplement.
Kratom has been used as medicine for centuries in Asia, but is now being increasingly popular in the west.
It has been sold over the internet and in pharmacies as a treatment for a range of ailments.
It also can help reduce the effects of opioid painkiller abuse and other withdrawal symptoms.
In September, a study of 1,500 people showed that people who used kratom had a reduced risk of opioid overdose than those who did not.
“The use of this drug may be a possible alternative to opioids for treating opioid pain, and the potential of this product as a new alternative treatment is a promising area for research,” the researchers said in a statement. Read more:
