International Kratom Status
There are only a few countries confirmed to have made kratom illegal at this time. Those countries are Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Burma, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Myanmar, and Vietnam. Despite these countries banning kratom, usually for politically motivated reasons, you will find that kratom is legal in most of the world.
Kratom isn’t completely banned but it’s legal status remains uncertain in Finland, Denmark, Romania, Germany, and New Zealand.
United States Legal Status
Currently, Kratom is legal in all states except Indiana.
In Louisiana and Tennessee, the laws are open to interpretation but Kratom is currently illegal to sell for human consumption. To our knowledge, no one has ever been prosecuted for possession of Kratom in the US.

⇒ Botanical Legal Defense: The Botanical Legal Defense is dedicated to fighting over-reaching government criminalization of nature’s most significant gifts. Chief among these is Mitragyna speciosa (aka Kratom), a natural analgesic, muscle relaxer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. This herbal supplement from southeast Asia has been widely misrepresented as dangerous and without medical value, when the truth is that is has already been under the scrutiny of the scientific community and has been found to be not only benign, but highly therapeutic.
