Kratom, a plant whose leaves contain opioid agonists, is legal. However, the DEA is trucking as fast as an enormous, cruel federal administrative group can truck to make it against the law. Many online retailers have preemptively removed it from their listings as a result, but as with any prohibition of any other psychoactive substance, it’s being quietly sold under some synonyms like Red Vein Sumatran, Maeng Da Micropowder, and Mitragyna Speciosa, the taxonomic name for the Kratom plant itself.
Fortunately, as soon as kratom becomes illegal, it will be impossible to get anywhere, and no one will ever take it again. It worked for weed (marijuana) and it will work for kratom too.
