Bill Prepared To Keep Kratom Legal in Utah

001

SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — The FDA is no fan of it, some states have banned it, but a proposed bill at the State Capitol would keep kratom legal in Utah.

The substance from a plant that grows in Southeast Asia is sold in pill, powder, and in as an extract at Jennie’s Smoke Shop in downtown Salt Lake.

Ron Anderson works at the store and has sold kratom to people from “all walks of life,” who tell him it relieves their pain. He uses it too, saying there’s no high, but it boosts his mood.

Still, the FDA issued a news release several months ago, urging people “not to consume kratom,” saying among other things, marketers have made “unsubstantiated claims” about some products containing it.
