The Ohio Board of Pharmacy wants to ban the herbal supplement Kratom, an all-natural product that comes from the Kratom plant. Hemptations owner E.R. Beach says his customers have been requesting Kratom for more than 7 years and tell him it helps with anxiety and pain relief. However, in a report the Ohio Board of Pharmacy found Kratom has a high potential for abuse; has no accepted medical use in treatment in the state; lacks accepted safety for use in treatment under medical supervision; and poses a risk to the public health of the citizens in this state. Beach says the board has no legal authority to lawfully ban Kratom, but it can make a recommendation to the state Legislature to make it illegal. “If the state of Ohio makes this substance illegal then we won’t sell it anymore,” Beach says.
