The Ministry of Justice of Thailand concluded that the leaves of the psychoactive plant Kratom should be
excluded from the official list of prohibited drugs, writes the Bangkok Post.
According to the general opinion of the authors of the project, Kratom is not popular among drug
addicts, but from ordinary people who just want to replenish the energy supply of their body. In
addition, the rational use of kratom cannot harm health.
Moreover, the Ministry of Justice believes that the beneficial medicinal properties of this plant should
be thoroughly investigated. In the future, they can be used in the production of herbal medicines.
Nevertheless, the legislature intends to toughen penalties for persons found to use kratom leaves to
prepare other drugs, among which the most famous are si Khoon ROI (Thai 4×100).
