Ohio Pharmacy Board Delays Decision On Kratom Ban

The decision was whether to classify Kratom as a schedule 1 substance

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy has delayed a decision on a proposal to classify Kratom as a Schedule 1 controlled substance.

Hundreds of people showed up Friday for a public hearing held by the Board of Pharmacy, but they were disappointed when only the director was there to hear them.

Matthew Mongold has had three open heart surgeries. Due to fears of addiction, he used prescription opioids sparingly, leaving him in constant pail, causing him to miss time with his family.

“Being a part of my kid’s life is important to me so I mean, it killed me not to be able to attend stuff,”​ said Mongold.

He says that all changed when he found Kratom. He was once again able to attend his son’s football games, pain free. He was one of many to share stories at the public hearing.
