Still crazy. Only nine countries in the world forbid kratom and one of them is Thailand.

Forbidden in Thailand as government couldnt control it to make profit.


"In Thailand, kratom was first scheduled for control in 1943 under the Kratom Act. At the time, the government was levying taxes from users and shops involved in the opium trade. Because of the increasing opium costs, many users were switching to kratom to manage their withdrawal symptoms. However, the launch of the Greater East Asia War in 1942 and declining revenues from the opium trade pushed the Thai government into action to curb and suppress competition in the opium market by making kratom illegal


Even in (muslim) country Indonesia , they grow , harvest and sell kratom.

TIT, if you have electric cigarette , you are also screwed.
