Short answer, probably, yes, it’s legal. But there are a few exceptions.
Kratom is legal in legal in 90% of the United States of America, as well as Canada, Mexico, and most of everywhere else too, with pockets here and there where it’s been criminalized. Because kratom is relatively new to the United States market at large, the US’s cultural propensity to stigmatize herbal remedies (like cannabis), and the ongoing epidemic many states are facing with regard to extensive abuse of narcotic pharmaceuticals as well as other illicitly bought drugs – the reaction is hit or miss. Perhaps out of a lack of education, many community members and community leaders are on a misguided path to vilify the plant. To that end, we’re seeing a rash of local municipalities ban the sale of the plant, or criminalize it within their metropolitan, county, or state jurisdiction. Nevertheless, kratom is very much legal in most parts of the USA. In fact, it’s easier to say where it’s not illegal than to say where it is illegal. To keep appraised of the flux in local legislation regarding kratom laws, we keep an ongoing blog category dedicated to that topic.
