“..Isn’t Kratom illegal in Thailand? It’s own country of origin.”

Angela Watson and Travis Lowin of the Botanical Education Alliance Testify about Kratom

..Not anymore!

As you know the BEA has been educating on Kratom since 2011. In our presentation to educate a TN House committee in early 2018, a common question was asked

“..Isn’t Kratom illegal in Thailand? It’s own country of origin.”

Board members Angela Watson and Travis Lowin were there to report on the fact that the Thai Government had hired a US university to research if making Kratom legal was a risk or not (see https://fsi-live.s3.us-west-1.amazonaws.com/s…/ahppwp_45.pdf).

The study said NO, and the Government listened and has now moved forward with steps to make Kratom legal for medical use. Change is happening on a global level and we feel this is only the first step in this country plan for safe access to #kratom.
