Lawmakers urge Louisiana Department of Health to study kratom: why?


The Louisiana Department of Health has been tasked with studying kratom, the over-the-gas-station-counter supplement with a cult following, to determine whether it should be classified as a ?controlled dangerous substance.?

Without any debate or line of questions May 16, the Louisiana House unanimously approved a resolution from state Rep. Frank Hoffmann directing the department to study the plant and products containing kratom. The resolution directs the department to submit a report to the House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice no later than two months before the beginning of the 2019 legislative session.

Processed from a southeast Asian plant, kratom products (as an herb or in pills or tea) are commonly used as a painkiller and sedative or stimulant ? it targets opioid receptors and largely impacts neurological and cardiovascular functions.?
