Ohio bans kratom, could impact Kentucky consumers

By  | 

The state of Ohio could be banning kratom, the plant-based supplement used to treat pain and opioid addiction.

Some said it saved their lives while others said it is dangerously addictive.

The Ohio Pharmacy Board has now made kratom a schedule one drug, putting it in the same category as heroin.

That means people from Kentucky who use the drug for chronic pain would not be able to travel to Ohio with kratom.

Ohio would be the seventh state to ban it.
