2nd bill filed in Florida to ban kratom

Freshman lawmaker introduces kratom bill in FloridaA second bill has been filed in the Florida senate that could potentially change the legal status of kratom. Last week, Representative Kristin Jacobs introduced a similar bill in the House that would make kratom a Schedule I controlled dangerous substance.

This week, Florida state Representative Greg Evers filed a bill in the Florida state senate that is essentially the same bill that Representative Jacobs filed in the house a week ago. If you live in the state of Florida, we encourage you to write your state representatives to let them know about the helpful benefits of the kratom plant.
