You can’t sell Kratom to minors

Kratom, a herbal product which is used as an opioid substitute but isn’t a controlled substance under federal laws, will not be sold to under 18s thanks to a new law.

The Minnesota House says the herbal drug has no accepted medical use and has “high potential for abuse.” Mixing kratom with alcohol or sedatives “creates an increased risk of a severe adverse reaction, including death,” but recognizes that “some people responsibly use kratom to manage pain.”

Under the new law, selling kratom to under 18s will be a gross misdemeanor.
