I did a search and found this thread. DEA to make Kratom a medicinal plant related to coffee Schedule 1 sept 30th Which conflicts a lot of what I find on google. So anyway, my 16 year old daughter, maybe 100 lbs, is with me for a few more weeks this summer. Found out tonight her mom has been giving her Kratom (don't know how much), after she had a meltdown today which is rare. She said she needed more Kratom. We never heard of it and the health food store gave my gf a funny look. So I did some reading about the so called addictive effects and all, and now I don't think it's such a good idea. I'd think if it's only sold in a smoke shop it's probably not legal for kids. Seems like a good way to get the CPS on me. I plan to take her to the doc in the morning and see if there's anything that needs to be done, or if there's something else she can take that's not going to get me in trouble for the time being. 2 more years and she can do whatever she wants. So my question to anyone with experience with this stuff, are these warnings nothing but hype from the drug industry? Or can you actually get messed up from this stuff?
