Rep. Kristin Jacobs is starting 2017 with another push to ban kratom in Florida.
She's proposing House Bill 183, which adds Mitragynine and Hydroxymitragynine (two alkaloids found in kratom) to the controlled substance list, and gives exception for FDA approved products that contain these alkaloids.
Nowhere in this bill does it mention kratom or mitragyna speciosa. This is sneaky.
It doesn't outright ban kratom, but it bans the alkaloids in kratom, and groups them in a category with other banned substances. Uninformed politicians, who may not vote for a kratom ban, may unknowingly vote to ban kratom with this bill.
Our payment processor was shut down for the third time in two years. If you're familiar with the kratom community, you know this is a common problem for many vendors.
The FDA/DEA hysteria towards kratom is making many U.S. banks nervous about dealing with kratom businesses. Many U.S. banks are putting pressure on credit/debit card merchants to drop payment processing for kratom altogether.
PayPal and now Dwolla have also followed suit. No kratom transactions allowed whatsoever. The few who do eventually get caught and terminated.
This forces us kratom vendors to look for alternative ways to accept payments.
