Update: I am changing this post for SWIM. It doesn't actually look like Utah plans to ban kratom anymore. But I will still leave what I found on a news site, and expressed concern. Original: I found this on kratomfact.info/news: "Feb 13, 2011 - There is a bill before the legislature in Utah that intends to ban a number of substances including kratom, spice, and "bath salts". Kratom is not the primary target of this bill, but once again, is being lumped together with other substances in a rush to ban them. This bill seems to be in flux as lawmakers argue about what exactly should be banned. The text can be found here: removed link. Let your voice be heard on this issue. Call or write the bill sponsor: removed contact info" Also when I went to go buy kratom today, the vendor no longer had debit/credit as an available payment, only COD and mail order. SWIM contacted the vendor. The vendor said their merchent processor dropped them without warning 2 weeks ago, that they can no longer provide services for "incence" vendors. I would like to now if other states are trying to ban, there is very little news about this due to the fact some are recent developments. So far I have heard nothing from her state in VA, but that doesn't mean anything. I am mega upset. SWIM only found this wonderful plant less then a year ago. Edit: It came to SWIM's attention that the info is from last February and not this February, but still I don't know what the deal is with this and would appreciate input as to what is happening here. Maybe it is a good sign that SWIM can't find information.
