THE GEORGIA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES PASSES THEIR VERSION OF THE KRATOM CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT...
The American Kratom Association, and every Kratom Advocate, is grateful for the courageous and important statement to the federal government that Georgia will do what is necessary to protect kratom consumers from dangerous adulterated kratom products. This nearly unanimous vote is a strong repudiation of FDA’s unfair and deeply flawed attack on kratom.
Sponsored by Representatives Hill, Caldwell, Jones, Mathiak, and Newton, the Georgia version of the Kratom Consumer Protection Act does the following:
Restricts kratom sales to kids under the age of 18
Requires clear labeling of kratom products labels that shows:
The amount of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine in the product
A list of each ingredient listed in order of predominance
Clear directions for use
Precautionary statements on the safety and effectiveness of the product
The name and address of the manufacturer
Based on discussions with Georgia Senators on this bill, it is expected the Kratom Consumer Protection Act will be passed when it is up for consideration.
Please note: Bill still has to passed by the full Senate
