Kailee joins Brian to look at the latest kratom news. This month we look at an investigative report asking questions about academic freedom at University of Florida that directly affected kratom scientists, past podcast guest Oliver Grundmann and Christopher McCurdy. Kratom regulations preventing sales to minors pass Pennsylvania House. A kratom consumer protection act is vetoed by the Missouri governor based on false information. Kratom sales are regulated in Thailand but banned in a Louisiana parish.
