In the last 2 weeks, Governor Kemp of Georgia State and Governor Ducey of Arizona State both signed the “Kratom Consumer Protection Act” which prohibits the sale of kratom products to minors and creates requirements for product labels.
In the United States, kratom is unregulated federally, therefore each individual state has the power to regulate kratom in their own manner. For example, kratom is legal across most of California except San Diego, while other states like Arkansas, Alabama, Vermont has banned it.
In a letter to Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, Ducey called for the federal government to regulate the plant.
“I will be writing to our federal partner agencies and strongly urging them to take a closer look at this product and promptly issue appropriate regulations.”
