…comments on kratom

…the FDA said the comments will be reviewed as it prepares a response to the World Health Organization (WHO), which is considering whether to place international restrictions on kratom and six other psychoactive substances.

Under international treaties, WHO is required to assess the use of psychoactive substances and advise the United Nations on whether they pose a public health risk and should be controlled. The annual assessment will begin in October [2021] and U.N. members have been invited to submit their recommendations. Although the FDA said the U.S. will defer from making any immediate recommendations to WHO, the notice in the Federal Register makes plain that the agency still has a dim view of kratom. It makes no mention of the medical benefits many kratom users get from the herbal supplement.
