Kratom leaves to be left out of new narcotics list

Well.. The exact same thing can be said about cannabis. So why not remove that as well?

 

I recently noticed a bunch of ads and a few local shops in the USA (Texas- which hasn't legalized weed) selling kratom.  So I'm figuring there's export $$$ potential for kratom.  Not so much for weed...  It ain't about the medical benefits.  It's about the coin.

It was banned because it competed with the thai opium market($$$). It can be used to lessen the side effect of opioid withrawal. 

 

"The Thai government had passed the Kratom Act 2486, effective August 3, 1943, which made planting the tree illegal,[16] in response to a rise in its use when opium became very expensive in Thailand and the Thai government was attempting to gain control of the opium market.[2] "

The DEA has been trying to make kratom illegal in the US but they failed because of huge backlash.
