County council in Missouri leads on kratom products

Posted by on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 @ 4:50 pm.

ST. CHARLES CO., Mo. – The St. Charles County Council enacted the St. Charles County Kratom Consumer Protection Ordinance that will save lives and protect consumers from dangerous black-market fake kratom that is often adulterated with potentially addictive and deadly illegal opioids. Dave Herman, chairman of The American Kratom Association (AKA), congratulated the Council “for carefully reviewing the science behind kratom and acting to protect consumers by assuring only safe and natural kratom is sold in the County.  We hope this will be the model for other towns/counties/localities around the country.”

The St. Charles Kratom Protection Ordinance bans adulterated kratom products, requires strict labeling requirements so consumers know exactly what is in the kratom product they are purchasing, assures the level of the kratom alkaloids have not been artificially increased above what occurs naturally, and prohibits of the sale of kratom to anyone under 18 years of age.

The AKA team worked closely with the St. Charles County Council to help craft the language within this ordinance.  Similar legislation has been adopted with near-unanimous support in Utah, Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada.

“The St. Charles County Council has acted responsibly, carefully reviewed the science that supports the level of regulation in the approved resolution, and has become the leader in local governments in responsibly regulating a marketplace for kratom to assure consumers have the freedom to safely use kratom products free from adulteration and contaminants,’ Herman concluded. “The AKA applauds this action.”
