Is Kratom Legal In Texas?
As of January 2018, Kratom is legal without restriction everywhere in the state of Texas.
No legislation pertaining to kratom is pending or in discussion, nor has there been any failed attempts to ban the leaf. This means you can buy, sell, and possess as much kratom as you can move and store in cities like Houston, Dallas, Austin, and Fort Worth, without concern over legal ramifications.
Kratom’s legal status in Texas is perhaps a reflection of the state’s stance on personal freedoms. Though not as passive as, say, California, Texas legislation tends to concentrate more on granting more rights to its citizens rather than restricting what people do in the privacy of their homes. The state’s size and location has placed it among the areas of concern for drug smuggling across the southern border, so less attention is paid to a dehydrated leaf with no known overdose cases.
According to advocates and enthusiasts, kratom is considered one of the best ways to deal naturally with opioid withdrawal. Since the American epidemic has hit Texas as much as any state, it may become a viable means of combating the unfortunate cases. Local pundits like the Harm Reduction Coalition (Mark Kinzly, Austin, Texas) have expressed how kratom has helped addicts reduce crippling withdrawal symptoms.
It is unlikely that kratom’s legality in Texas will become an issue anytime soon, and as more information about the leaf becomes available, legal action against kratom should become even less likely.
Where To Buy Kratom in Texas
Kratom can be likely be bought at your local smoke shop. It is a very popular product in smoke shops across the country. You will pay a premium purchasing kratom locally and in our experience, smoke shop kratom is somewhat inferior and not as fresh as kratom that can be purchased online. We recommend finding a reputable vendor online that consistently carries fresh kratom at a reasonable price.
