Kratom’s Legality in Missouri
As of May 2018, kratom is legal without restriction in the state of Missouri. This means there is no penalty for possessing, selling, or distributing any amount of kratom within state lines. The state deemed the gateway from from the east to the west of the U.S.A. has enacted no anti-kratom legislation, and there have been no verified rumors about any laws in the works.
The Future of Kratom in Missouri
The legality of kratom in the state of Missouri is not currently in question at least at the state level. Kratom faces ongoing threats at the federal level that will likely continue indefinitely and kratom consumers in Missouri must always stay vigilant and ready to contact their state representatives and voice their opposition to any type of state legislation that may spring up. While there isn’t currently any legislation (at the time of this writing), things can move very quickly at the state level and it would not surprise us whatsoever to see an anti-kratom bill pop up in the state legislature. For now, barring any Federal mandates, kratom appears safe in the state of Missouri.
Where To Buy Kratom In Missouri
Kratom is most often purchased at smoke shops around the country. Missouri is no different. While it can occasionally be purchased from an entrepreneurially minded kratom lover in your local area, the majority of kratom sold locally is found at smoke shops. We take issue with kratom being sold in smoke shops for several reasons. One, we believe the overall image of kratom in the public sphere is damaged when the product is purchased at a smoke shop because other, less savory products are often purchased from smoke shops and kratom is often found guilty by association. It was not that long ago that spice and bath salts were sold at smoke shops around the country and kratom is often, very unfairly, lumped into this category of product. Two, in our experience, smoke shop kratom is typically of lesser quality than kratom that can be purchased online from a reputable vendor. And three, kratom is often priced at incredibly high margins at smoke shops. For these reasons, we believe the kratom community is better served when purchasing the product from reputable online vendors.
