Arizona Lawmakers Poised To Approve Kratom Regulations

The law would ban anyone younger than age 18 from purchasing kratom

Lawmakers are planning to regulate kratom, a drug that is still undergoing evaluations by federal agencies, such as the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Food and Drug Administration, and has been making medical professionals nervous.

“Is it just me that doesn’t know what kratom is?” Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita, R-Scottsdale, said during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing of House Bill 2550.

The measure, sponsored by Rep. Tony Rivero, R-Peoria, would disallow the sale of kratom to anyone under the age of 18 and requires sellers of the product to disclose what all is in their kratom based products on top of other regulatory measures.

Rivero calls it the “Kratom Consumer Protection Act.”
