Is Kratom Legal?

Those who are interested in buying kratom worry that they may be falling into a legal trap based upon the propaganda generated by the media. Mainstream news outlets have depicted Mitragyna Speciosa as a "dangerous drug" and an "epidemic" when there are truly legitimate uses for it. Unfortunately, there are some who abuse the plant and cause concern for its legal status.

Kratom is currently uncontrolled federally in the United States. This means that you cannot be prosecuted for buying or selling it. Mitragyna Speciosa is however, controlled on a state level.

Here is a list of the states that currently have kratom listed as a controlled substance:


As strong proponents for the legality of kratom, we are standing up for the right to continue using this plant for the healing powers it is capable of. Like other substances (including caffeine), there is a potential for abuse and Mitragyna Speciosa should be used with care. We hope that the plant will not be outlawed before legislature really figures out what it is all about. Help fight for kratom and stay safe.

Kratom is illegal for purchase and sale in states that are highlighted in grey in the map below:
