“Kratom” New law in effect.

Earlier this week Governor Robert Bentley signed a bill into law making Kratom a schedule 1 controlled substance. This new law puts Kratom on the same level as heroin and LSD and went into effect immediately.


The Scottsboro Police Department has already begun seizing products containing Kratom (or its active ingredients) from local businesses. The Scottsboro Police Department wants to make the public aware that possession, distribution, and trafficking of these compounds are unlawful, and violations are subject to the existing criminal penalties for distribution and possession.
