in the Livingston Parish Council Chambers.
On the Agenda: Discussion of Kratom prohibition ordinance

Sources brought to the attention of Kratom Science that Sheriff Jason Ard, who proposed the kratom prohibition ordinance that his brother Jeff introduced to the council of Livingston Parish, Louisiana, has been receiving campaign contributions since 2013 from Smith Tank and Steel, a construction contractor who sponsors Life House, a Christian drug rehabilitation center with two locations in the area. Members from Life House testified in favor of kratom prohibition at a hearing at Ascension Parish in August 2022. Some rehabilitation centers are in favor of prohibition as they can receive new clients through the court system. The FAQ page of the Life House website states, “We have developed a relationship with probation departments and will work with the legal system on your behalf.”

Plus, Brian talks about the Federal Kratom Bill and state bills to ban kratom in Mississippi.
