Missouri Lawmaker Proposes Bill To Ban Kratom

Right now there are no FDA-approved uses from kratom

A Missouri lawmaker is trying to black-list the drug kratom, but people who use it in the Heartland are coming to it’s defense.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is still warning consumers not to use kratom, also known as Mitragyna speciosa a medicinal plant grown in Southeast Asia.

Senator Bob Onder of St. Charles proposed SB 765 which would make kratom a Schedule 1 substance, potentially putting it at the same level as ecstasy, heroin, and meth.

“Those are some major drugs. Kratom is not that,” said Nicolette Husk.

Husk, a mother of three also suffers from severe anxiety and is a daily user of kratom.

“I’m able to wake up every morning go about my day like a normal person and I don’t feel like I took anything,” Husk said. “If they were to ban kratom that would ultimately take away thousands of people’s livelihoods from them.”
