Kratom Ohio Ban

Kratom: Ohio Could Soon Ban Plant-based Supplement Used for Opioid Addiction

COLUMBUS — Kratom, a plant-based supplement that consumers say alleviates chronic pain and opioid addiction, could soon be banned in Ohio.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy voted Monday to classify kratom a Schedule I controlled substance alongside heroin, LSD and other dangerous illegal drugs. The board concluded kratom has a high potential for abuse, has no accepted medical use, isn’t safe to use in medical treatment and poses a public health risk.

The board’s vote starts a months-long process of approving new rules and regulations for kratom, and public comment will be accepted at various points in the process.


It has become quite evident here andhere, that the DEA as chosen kratom to be the “straw man” in the battle of the opioid crisis.
