PHUKET:-- A raid by anti-narcotics officers in Phuket before dawn today netted 500 kilograms of kratom and seven suspects, and saw four cars seized.

 

The total value of the items seized were estimated to be worth B3 million, Phuket Vice Governor Supoj Rotreuang Na Nongkhai announced at a press conference at Phuket Provincial Hall today (Dec 27).

 

Acting on a tip-off, officers from the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) staged a stakeout near the Hong Yok Bamrung School in Mai Khao.

"The leaves of kratom have been used as an herbal drug from time immemorial by peoples of Southeast Asia. It is used in folk medicine as a stimulant (at low doses), sedative (at high doses), recreational drug, pain killer, medicine for diarrhea, and treatment for opiate addiction."

Kratom was deemed illegal in the mid 1940's because people were using it to stop their opium addiction and the opium sellers were losing too much money. Damn. Greed wins once again.

Wasn't kratom just legalised by the NLA??? (If not, why not!)

For medical only so far and that's just to open the door for research. I expect both tom and ganja to be under a lot more scrutiny since they've changed their designation. I'm sure China gave Thailand an earful when they went this route and now they have to prove to daddy China that they're just as anti drug as before. No, alcohol will be the only legal drug here for years to come, which is good business for the medical profession, orphanages, divorce lawyers, cops and the monks at the burning pits.
