New York State Kratom Laws

New York State Legislature

Kratom is currently legal in the State of New York.

In 2019, state senator Pamela Helming introduced a bill that was New York’s version of the KCPA. This bill would make it legal to sell, use, and possess kratom for those over 18. It would make selling kratom to a minor a $500 fine. As of June 2020, the bill is still alive, but progressing slowly.

Advocates are actively working so that kratom remains legal.

If you would like to help protect kratom please look into the American Kratom Association. The AKA has organized the American Kratom Protectors. They are a national grassroots organization that will help lead the advocacy efforts as we fight state bans, share correct information about kratom, and push passage of state and federal Kratom Consumer Protection Acts.
