Kratom Ban Passes Senate Committee
A bill that would put kratom on Florida’s list of Schedule I substances passed the Senate Committee on Criminal Justice by just one vote on Tuesday, the Palm Beach Postreports.
Kratom is an herbal drug, comprised of the leaf of a tree that grows in Southeast Asia. It can produce opium-like effects. According to the Post, the bill would make it a first-degree misdemeanor to possess the substance.
