No pending bills in Georgia exist that could threaten the legality of purchasing or using Kratom in Georgia as well, which is great news for Kratom users living in Georgia. However, Georgia’s next door neighbor, the state of Tennessee, has banned the sale and consumption of Kratom, as well as Florida’s Sarasota County. According to various Kratom groups that constantly scan the legislative horizon for signs of possible anti-Kratom rhetoric, Georgia lawmakers may be looking into proposing a bill to either restrict or ban Kratom for sale in Georgia in the future.
A bill called HB 783 could have made Kratom illegal in Georgia but fortunately, many hard-working Kratom enthusiasts espousing the medicinal benefits of Kratom that have been substantiated by research studies got the bill removed from any further consideration.
In fact, Kratom is legal to buy in Georgia and most other U.S. states. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to meddle with the legality of Kratom by claiming its active alkaloid may represent a danger to users. Since Kratom has still not been listed as a Schedule II drug by the FDA, this indicates the FDA knows it doesn’t have the proof needed to ban the sale and consumption of Kratom in the U.S. on a federal level.
