Oregon Lawmakers Spike Bill To Regulate Kratom

The bill would have regulated the production, testing and labeling of kratom

 Oregon lawmakers have decided to leave the drug kratom unregulated for now.

Kratom is made from the leaves of a tree native to southeast Asia and, when ingested, can have an effect similar to both a stimulant and an opioid. It has become increasingly publicized and available in Oregon.

In April, the Senate Judiciary Committee amended a series of rules and restrictions on kratom into an unrelated bill. On Monday, the Joint Ways and Means Committee reversed the earlier action and removed all references to kratom in the bill.

The bill would have regulated the production, testing and labeling of kratom and limited its sales to people age 21 and over.
