DEA Drops Ban on Herbal Supplement Kratom

 

WASHINGTON — The Drug Enforcement Administration has reversed a plan to temporarily ban a plant that some users suggest could be an alternative to powerful and addictive opioid painkillers.

 

In a notice set to be published Thursday in the Federal Register, the agency said it was withdrawing its plan to add two psychoactive components of the plant, known as kratom, to the list of the most dangerous drugs.

 

The drug agency said it will now wait for a recommendation from the Food and Drug Administration and take more comments from the public before deciding on kratom’s fate. The public has until Dec. 1 to comment.

For now that means that kratom, a little-known plant native to Southeast Asia, remains legal under federal law. Six states, however, have opted to ban kratom or its components.

 

 

 

Elsewhere, I read that the DEA's decision was based heavily on the massive public outcry in response to the proposed ban.  The agency received far more comments than is usual for these proposed administrative moves.

 

 

EDIT: Shit, sorry, I was wrong.  That article is from October.  I thought I saw somewhere else that they were dropping the ban after the comment period.  That hasn't happened.

Not the DEA, but rather than start a whole new thread...

 

"Bill Filed in Florida House to Make Kratom a Controlled Substance"

 

 

House Bill 183 would add Mitragynine and Hydroxymitragynine, constituents of Kratom, to the schedule of controlled substances, offering an exception for any FDA approved substance containing these chemicals.

 

Selling, delivering, manufacturing, or importing these Kratom chemical constituents into Florida would be considered a misdemeanor of the first degree, should the law go into effect.

I am hoping it is still legal come income tax time lol. I cannot believe how they railroaded CBD oil through and made it a schedule 1 controlled substance. No public commentary time on that one! Just BAM you are a felon...

Assholes.  It's like they got cock-blocked on kratom so they needed to go stick their slimy hard on somewhere else.  Is CBD even psychoactive?  A quick search seems to indicate that it isn't.

Florida is where politicians come to learn how to be corrupt assholes. Politicians in general corrupt assholes but the ones in Florida take it to a whole 'nother level. Just look at the governor Rick Scott. I rest my case.

My Dr. asked for a urine sample and then tested for " drugs" only tested for cannabis as far as I know because I ate mushrooms a day or so before. The DR. now won't prescribe me any Xanax , good its not really a brain healthy medicine. I was told no controlled substances, I figure that must mean heart medicine as well as its not available over the counter.

My wife received a call today about giving a UA. I told her  no and we will just self medicate, cannabis, kratom, fungi.

 Dr.'s are 1 person death panels.

 We need to learn to use ancient medicines, or I do anyways.
